New Scholar Orientation

Galapagos Rockford Charter School believes that it is important that the parents of all new scholars attend a parent orientation. This orientation allows time for Galapagos staff to describe the mission, programing and the expectations of Galapagos Rockford Charter School. This orientation allows for parents of new scholars to learn about GRCS and ask questions so that they may make an informed decision as to whether GRCS is the correct fit for their child.

If you recently received confirmation about an opening for your scholar please sign up for one of the Parent Orientations below.  The sign-up for orientations will close one day before the orientation.  In that situation, please sign-up for a different date.  If you have any issues please contact Galapagos directly.

The August 14th, 2018 orientation begins at 5:30pm at 2605 School St.
