2022-2023 Academic year
At NOVA, many students who felt they didn’t fit in or who didn’t thrive in elementary school find a cohort of like-minded peers and enthusiastically explore new topics, absorb information, and celebrate the fascinating world we live in. If you think you’d like to be part of our school community, this is the place to start.
This year NOVA is celebrating 30 Years of Connection, Commitment, Intention, and Joy. Stay tuned for information about our 30th Year Community Celebration Party in the spring of 2023!
