Get Ready for the 2017 ConVal Summer Academy!
Registration is now open for the 2017 Summer Academy at ConVal Regional High School.
The Academy is a great way to extend student learning through the summer to prevent the usual “summer slide,” the traditional loss of academic skills and knowledge over the course of the summer holidays.
In addition to recovery courses, the ConVal Summer Academy offers business courses, art instruction in ceramics, metalsmithing and jewelry making, an examination of dystopian fiction on climate change, and the “backstage to onstage” production of “Singing in the Rain, Jr.”
