Steps Towards Enrollment

  1. The enrollment process varies depending on resident school district, student age and whether or not they are actively enrolled in high school. Please do this enrollment survey which asks for information we need to know to move forward. This does not commit you to enrolling with us.
  2. We will reach out to you based on the contact info you left in the enrollment survey on the THURSDAY following your submission. From the questions on the form, we will be able to tell you the next steps, what the program would look like, how long it might take, etc. 
  3. If you are interested in enrolling, we will send you any additional forms we might need. Most students can start the same month they complete forms.

We have a zoom room available for drop-ins every Tuesday 11 a.m.-1 p.m. or you can reach out via call, text or email to make a private appointment.

Please know, we need the information collected from the enrollment survey before we can answer specific questions about what a student needs for graduation, available options, timeline, etc. The enrollment survey allows us to do things like view a student's transcript, consult with guidance counselors, etc to determine eligibility and options.
