  • Hosted by the Director of Curriculum and Integration, School Visits will provide interested/potential families an opportunity to get an overview of curriculum at SPA, visit 3-4 classrooms to see the platform and curriculum in action, and ask questions of the Director. School Visits will be limited in size to provide families an intimate forum to learn more about the school, and a place to ask questions and get information. Our hope is that when families leave the School Visit, they will feel informed about the academic and arts experience at SPA and feel more confident that their student will learn the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in college and career.
