2016 Fees, Dates, Links, Financial Aid and Volunteer Opportunities

WELCOME BACK!  After one of the largest graduating classes of IB Diploma students graduated last year you might think there would be a let-down in excitement and future possibilities.  Nope, not at Charter Oak!  With new additions of a French teacher and a Music teacher, the return of Mrs. Grund, a focused group of seniors, APUSH teacher Mrs. Volpe’s leadership as Academies/Pathways Coordinator, and a 30-year anniversary of I.B. at Charter Oak within the future, there’s a lot to be excited about!

Below are several important pieces of information and tasks for you to complete.  Welcome back, we’re off to a great start, see you soon! – Mr. Long
