Due to COVID-19, Open House will be held via live webinar for the 2021–2022 school year.

Pre-registration is required due to limited access per session. You may pre-register by clicking here.

Parents or legal guardians are encouraged to view one of the Open House sessions as vital information about our school philosophy, course offerings, and student and family expectations are discussed. Students are encouraged to view the presentation, but not required. All prospective families are welcome!
