This is the time of year where I usually encourage all of our RCOA families to re-enrol as soon as possible, as knowing the numbers of students and the geographical areas they live in really helps us to plan by knowing how many new teachers or facilities we will need… However, there is another reason to re-enrol quickly.
This year we are experiencing unprecedented enrolments and re-enrolments. As I compare the trends over the 14 years that RCOA has been in existence, I have never witnessed the numbers of applications we have processed since March 1. The most applications we have ever had at the end of March is approximately 485, but we are almost at 600 now and it is just the first day of Spring (March 20th). This is absolutely wonderful! We still have room, of course, in most areas of the school, but I do know that some K-7 Community Classes and PIE locations are already approaching close to capacity. Our amazing special education department is filling up as well. If this beautiful trend continues many of our amazing RCOA classes will reach capacity in the not so distant future.
The 2018/2019 High School (grade 8-12) face-to-face schedules are available here. Details outlining cost and content coverage will be added during the first week in April. Grade 8-12 learners wishing to sign up for face-to-face opportunities on June 1 are strongly encouraged to reenrol ASAP. Sign up requires that you have had a consultation with our program advisor first. Spots in the most popular of these opportunities in some locations fill up quickly, and the exciting new options can only run if there is enough interest! Don’t delay. Complete the application now!
- Sign up for RCOA enrolled High School learners will open June 1st, 2018. To access the sign up forms, click on Activities/Clubs/Classes under your name in OTIS. You must have chatted with a program advisor before you can sign up.
- RCOA registered learners will gain access to remaining spots via the Activities/Clubs/Classes in OTIS on July 1st, 2018.
- Non RCOA learners will be provided a spot if there are spots available as of September 1st, 2018 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please, if you know that you would like to be back with RCOA, or know of a friend who is considering enrolling with us; may I encourage you and your friend to fill out your application right away? This is shaping up to be a fantastic year already. We are shaping up to be “bursting at the seams!”
