Hurricane Harvey Update:  Due to the devastating impact of the flooding in our community, we are shortening the fall semester to eight weeks and beginning on Sunday, September 24.  Also, we are implementing a “pay as you can” policy for this semester.  We will provide full or partial scholarships for any of our students this semester.  We recognize that many of our community have been and will be impacted financially as recovery begins and want to ensure that all who want to participate this semester are able.  Our thoughts and prayers continue for our community.
