We are open for before-care drop-off starting at 7:05 each morning. We are currently negotiating with our partners at The Common Place to finalize after-care plans and options. We will update our families when an agreement has been reached.
While we understand that the outlook for this upcoming school year is different than ever before, tuition for the 2020-21 school year will remain the same. Both the "Four Plus One" hybird and Remote Learning models require full-time staffing and our teachers are as fully committed as ever to providing a high-quality academic setting for our students. Additionally, each student will receive a Chromebook which will bring uniformity for learning on and off-campus, troubleshooting tech issues, and help us with academic assessments in this new learning environment. Thank you for your understanding as we strive to overcome the obstacles presented by the COVID-19 crisis and deliver on our promise to provide the highest level of education for your children.
