Classes Active

Fall 2018

After an inaugural year in 2017, Preschool (age 3 by 9/30/17) and Kindergarten (age 5 by 9/30/17) and First Grade classes started in the Fall of 2018. Over the next several years, the school intends to add one grade each year (2nd grade, 3rd grade, etc.), ultimately accommodating students from preschool through 6th grade.
