Dear Parents, Caregivers, and Students:

We are thrilled to share the most current news for you regarding our fall programming.

Important Start up Information

For all students and families who have registered, we will be holding orientation sessions. Please keep an eye on your email for information regarding date and time for that orientation.

3. High school students, including adult learners

High school students will be registered in our mandatory Getting Ignited Online (GIO) orientation course and will receive Communication, Technology (CTS) credits for successful demonstration of learning.
