The majority of students join Greenwood in September; however, our individualized curriculum accommodates a few students to comfortably join mid-year.
Teachers are on a first name basis, forging loving relationships and strong connections with their students. We offer a customized college preparatory curriculum, ensuring students are engaged intellectually and creatively inspired.
