This is a time students choose what they want to learn more about. The sky is the limit as long as the topic is in line with the core values of the school. Students will learn to choose what to learn more about, how to go about putting together their own learning plan, and securing the resources to learn about that topic.

We are so excited to kick off our inaugural school year and would love to have your family involved in this academic movement.
