Alternative High School Night

Date: Thursday, February 1st, 5:30-8:00 PM at the Thousand Oak Library, Community Room
Details: One Spark Academy is hosting its second presentation of alternative high school programs in the area. Representatives from at least four neighboring districts will have about five minutes to share about their program in a panel presentation, providing a general overview and advising on which students might find most success there. After the panel (about 30-40 minutes), representatives will chat with prospective families at their own tables, hand out any materials, inform about tour dates, registration, and so forth. This is an opportunity for families to hear about the wonderful alternative options available and hopefully find the best fit! Beyond high school programs, there will be a few representatives from high school level enrichment programs.

This is a FREE community event. We may not hold this meeting annually, so it is recommended for families looking “down the road”. Students are welcome to attend if accompanied by a parent. PLEASE RSVP so we know how many to prepare for.

Refreshments will be served.
