FINALLY COMING UP FOR AIR & INTO THE LIGHT!

D1QyVEa

So we went dark there for a little while, but now we're back to stay! The good news is that all our hard work these last few months to secure federal startup grant funding has paid off (woohoo!), so we can continue our development towards opening The Studio School! The sad news is, because of the tight timing of this current federal funding cycle, and some subsequent struggles we've experienced securing a facility, we have made the very difficult decision to postpone our opening until Fall 2019.

But we hope you will stick with us and join us in viewing this as an opportunity rather than a setback because:
1. We continue to be incredibly encouraged and excited by the high level of interest that students and parents have continued to demonstrate for our school program through increased information requests and enrollment applications we've received throughout the past few months.
2. We now plan to open Fall 2019 enrollment to 9th, 10th AND 11th grades.
3. We're establishing new connections and collaboration plans almost daily, so we feel very supported by the Twin Cities community.
4. We now have more facility options available to us for Fall 2019 than ever before!

So please stay tuned for future updates as we continue progressing towards opening, and THANK YOU for your continued interest, patience and support!

Note: If you have already submitted a Phase 1 enrollment application for Fall 2018, we will be in touch with you personally via email in the coming weeks with options for carrying your enrollment forward should you choose to do so.
