Wednesday, November 11 @ 9:30-10:30 AM: Virtual Open House
How does the Green Acres experience change the course of a childhood? How does it set the foundation for success in high school and beyond? Hear from the unique perspectives of Green Acres community members, who will share how our academic programs have challenged them, inspired them, and helped them to achieve success. Next, prospective families will be invited to “breakout rooms” so you can get more personally acquainted with our staff and ask questions specific to the grade(s) you’re interested in.

NEW! Thursday, January 28 @ 3:45–4:45 PM: Mini-Bot Workshop
For applicants to Grades 47
Join us virtually for an afternoon of mad science! Using recycled materials from your house and materials provided by us, your child will create their very own “junkbots” that can race and wrestle. Don’t worry if you don’t have any prior robot experience—our Green Acres teachers will lead your child through every step of the process!

Thursday, February 4 @ 7–8 PM: Talk: "COVID Winter" with Dr. Rebecca Resnik
As we near the one-year anniversary of the pandemic, Green Acres is excited to host a presentation by local (and beloved) psychologist Dr. Rebecca Resnik. Life for teens and tweens was complicated enough before COVID turned our lives upside down, so Dr. Resnik will present practical, actionable information on how your child can "weather the storm." Science has learned a lot about how stress can bring out the best in us, as well as drag us down. Dr. Resnik discusses the differences between adaptive and toxic stress and what it takes to cope effectively in a time of uncertainty. She offers practical advice for parenting during the "COVID winter" so you and your teen/tween can thrive. This talk also includes discussion of critical mental health "red flags" every parent must know to protect their child. 

Thursday, February 18 @ 7–8 PM: "Life Beyond Green Acres"
Applicants only
Every year, Green Acres hosts "Life Beyond Green Acres," a panel discussion for current parents about how our graduates do in high school. We hope our applicant families will consider joining us for the event, as well. A Zoom link will be provided as the event nears.
