Student Opportunities
On this page we will announce student opportunities that can provide your student with additional experiences outside of high school. By taking advantage of some of these opportunities your child can learn many things: time management skills, academic skills, social skills, personal skills, help your child build personal values, learn how to better network, meet students/teachers from other schools, resume building experiences and overall gaining experiences that may not be offered through our school. By communicating these opportunities and connections within our community, we are building a stronger community.
