Special Events

The School hosts several special events through the School year which give students opportunities to gain real-life, hands-on experience, facilitate community engagement, and raise needed funds to help maintain the quality of our Program and keep Tuition fees reasonable.

 

Special events are wonderful ways to engage the public, celebrate the School, and show our students in action!

My goodness, such a fun evening. Our hats are tipped to all of the graduating students. Everything was sumptuous. Dinner was spectacular.”
