What's New This Year

9th Grade

Genesis adds a grade every year.  This year will be our first year of highschool.  Decisions are still being finalized as to whether we will have a separate campus for 9th grade this year.

First day of school:
August 17, 2020 (all-virtual start)
School Hours:
Lower School (K-4th Grade) Update coming soon
Lower School (5th Grade) Update coming soon
Middle School (6th - 8th Grade) Update coming soon
High School (9th Grade) Update coming soon
Dismissal Times and Sibling Care

Scholars, not attending an afterschool provider, must be picked up within 30 minutes of their dismissal time. Scholars not picked up by their scheduled dismissal time will proceed to Global Tech Academy. Parents will need to park and pick up scholars from GTA and pay appropriate fees.

Sibling care, for the hour between the lower school dismissal time and the upper school dismissal time, is offered for families with lower school scholars with an upper school sibling (once we return to in-person learning). This allows for families to come at one dismissal time to pick up all of their scholars. Sibling care is only for siblings.
