• Family Academy


    EDGE is a talent development program designed to nurture the strengths of students who show signs of high academic potential. Last year, through a generous grant from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, we started the EDGE Parent Academy (now renamed Family Academy), to provide families of EDGE students with information and resources to help support their high-ability learners on an advanced academic pathway.    

    I am pleased to inform you that Family Academy meetings will take place again this year. Please note that we will have in-person and virtual meetings this year. You will receive email invitations from me with meeting details. Please RSVP to let us know you will be attending. This is a family event, so other family members are welcome. There will be childcare for siblings. 

    This year, the in-person meetings will be held at different elementary schools throughout the county.
