The city’s newest school is on the cusp of signing a lease agreement to secure a location for the school.
The site for Seven Summits Centre for Learning will be announced once the lease is sealed, but the school is moving full steam ahead with plans to open in September.
Interested parents and students are still encouraged to visit the website at www.sevensummitslearning.com to learn more about the educational philosophy of SelfDesign and the courses available.
The school calendar will match that of School District 20 for most students. They are still accepting registrations throughout the summer and fall and have plenty of room available for any and all interested learners from Grade 8 – 12.
Registration forms are available on the site, as well as forms for financial aid. The program fee is pro-rated depending on how many courses students take: $600 for one to three courses; $800 for four to seven courses; and $1,000 for eight to 10 courses.
The school welcomes students from all across the region and beyond, and will be able to provide entrance scholarships for those who are unable to pay the full program fee.
If you are interested in sponsoring the registration of a student, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the next few weeks the centre is expected to announce some volunteer opportunities for members of the community who have a skill or talent that they would like to share with youth attending the Seven Summits Centre for Learning.
The hope is to develop a roster of local experts who are able to lead workshops and activities that run the gamut from outdoor pursuits to building technology skills.
With SelfDesign’s flexible, personalized approach to the BC curriculum and the wealth of Rossland talent, there is an excitement about the rich possibilities of programming the school can offer to local and international students.
The Rossland Visions for Small Schools Society held its annual general meeting last Wednesday.
