When and where is Orientation?

We have Orientations in June, July & August for New Families and will arrange group orientations on an as-needed basis throughout the school year.  

Special orientation dates are arranged for families who cannot attend a group orientation.  *There will be an additional $25 charge for special orientations that occur outside of the scheduled group orientation dates.

Orientation location will vary depending on the families who are attending.  A public library that is equidistant from the accreditors' and orientation families' homes is the optimal choice.  Notice of the orientation location will be sent to you prior to your scheduled time.  We do our best to accommodate as we value both your time and our accreditors' as well.
