POSTSECONDARY PARTNERS

Every K-8 grade level is partnered with a postsecondary institution. Students learn from professors and students in various degree programs throughout the year. This partnership culminates in an annual campus visit, where students tour the school and participate in hands-on learning activities.

 

In high school, we work with teachers and other community groups to facilitate small group visits tailored to specific education and career goals.
