Corolla’s free, public charter school announces Open House

The Water’s Edge Village School is hosting an Open House on Thursday, February 23, 2017 in advance of the 2017-2018 school year.  The school is expanding enrollment for this coming year to become a K-8 school capped at 36 students (currently a K-7 capped at 32).

The public is invited to our Open House at the schoolhouse at 1126 Schoolhouse Lane in Corolla. Attendees can come any time throughout the school day (8:45-3:40) or after school until 5:30pm. Parents are encouraged to bring their prospective students to meet the teachers, learn about the curriculum and teaching methods, see the classrooms, and ask questions.

Charter schools are free and open to all NC resident students but admission is subject to a lottery if more people apply than there are open seats.

Enrollment (through our website) is open through March 9 for the 2017-2018 academic year. Enrollment is not limited to district lines, so any NC resident student may sign up for the lottery. For more information, visit www.WatersEdgeVillageSchool.com or email us at corollaeducation@gmail.com

Teachers of the Water’s Edge Village School have been pioneering a combination of multi-grade, projects-based, multi-disciplinary learning with community partnerships, outdoor education, online learning, and field-trips.

The school, chartered in 2012 to provide a local school for Corolla’s children geographically isolated from their public schools across the Sound, has worked with the Coastal Studies Institute, the Wildlife Education Center, Jeannette’s Pier, Jockey’s Ridge, and the Whalehead Club to make modern history in Corolla’s Historic Village.
