Hybrid Classes

We are currently offering a hybrid program. That means they are both available online and in person. Students can choose when they want to come in person and when they want to join online at home.


If students plan to take classes online, they will need to have a laptop/computer/tablet that can access Zoom. They will also need to have a webcam and a microphone to interact and communicate with teachers and classmates.
