2020-21 Calendar

COVID-19 and the 2020-21 School Year: In response to COVID-19 and the resulting uncertainty about in-person events, we have a flexible dual-track program planned for 2020-21. We will meet in-person as much as is safe and practical, and on-line with a newly developed curriculum designed to leverage the unique advantages of remote learning. For details, reach out to our director, Dr. Joel M. Hoffman.

Times

  • The program runs in-person from 9:45am to 12:15pm, or on-line from about 10:00am to 11:00am.
  • In person, we start with a light breakfast for parents and students.
