Watch for your registration packet to arrive approximately the second week in August.  Please know that if you are a 7th grade student or a new student (at any grade level) in addition to the packet,  you will need to present proof of residency at our orientation/registration.  Proof of Residency can be a utility bill or mogage/lease agreement; sorry, but a driver's liscence does not qualify as proof of residency.  Additionally, new students should plan to bring a copy of their birth certificate and immunization record.

We look forward to meeting new students and greeting all the familiar students we know already!  Until then,  have a wonderful, safe and happy summer!

It is sustainable education framed through the six E’s of Economicology - Economics, Environment, Ecology, Ethics, Empathy, and Education.  Economicology states that ‘we need to teach people, especially the young, how to use our resources’.
