Fall Break Starts Next Week!

Fall Break starts next week! The dates are October 4-22, 2021.

Excel Registration

Would your high school student benefit from some extended time to work on focus areas or projects? Have they missed, for whatever reason, and simply need some extra time to catch up? Would they benefit from smaller more individualized learning? Maybe your student just wants to get ahead. If so, then Excel may be the perfect opportunity for them.

Each day is broken up into two sessions: 8am-10:30am and 11:30-2pm. Breakfast and Lunch is included each day.

You will need to fill out a separate form for each child in your family that plans to attend.

PEP Information

PEP Week is taking place October 11th-15th. All activities are FREE! Use the QR Code to sign up for the activities.
