Current Information

SESSION 19 PARENT MEETING CHANGE: The parent/student meeting for session 19 has been changed from May 2 to June 25. This change was the result of construction issues at Flathead High School. Meeting will be held in the auditorium at 7:00 PM.

At this time we don't have any openings for the 2017-2018 school year. However, we do get openings because students drop or move to another class. Check our website or give us a call for openings.

We have parents that have registered and wish to be put on a waiting list for another session. We have done that for parents who wanted an earlier or later class that was full. We only have a few name on our waiting list. If you haven't registered we could take you contact information and call you if needed. Chances of this happening are slim. If you can't get into any of our classes through the summer we will start registration for the 2018-2019 school year sometime in May.
