Board Adopts Official Scholar Enrollment Policy
The Founding Board of Directors recently adopted SSC’s official scholar enrollment policy. Interested families of scholars who will be eligible for grades K-1 in the Fall of 2021 can submit an enrollment application beginning October 1. Prospective parents are strongly encouraged to participate in one of dozens of family preview sessions that will be held throughout the fall, beginning in September, to learn more about the unique educational model.
SSC Now has an Official Office Location
WE’RE MOVING! As our leadership team expands, this development provides two significant advantages: the perfect amount of space to conduct official business in SSC’s planning & implementation year as well as a convenient location for stakeholders to access!

Your contribution will help to ensure a strong launch for SSC.
