    FROM HERE TO THERE: Achieving Success in the Middle School Years

    We are offering 2 of these Middle School Information Sessions:
    September 24 at 9:30 a.m. | Register Now
    December 17 at 9:30 a.m. | Registration will open in November
    Teel Campus | 201 Water Street, Severna Park, MD 21146

    The middle school years represent a critical time in a student's development. And it can be challenging. Independence. Distractions. Growth. All of which are new, both to students and parents. It is during these formidable years that Severn focuses on meeting students where they are.

    At this special session, you’ll learn how Severn helps students successfully navigate the middle school years by building an academic foundation and supporting the social and emotional growth that takes place from sixth to eighth grades. You’ll hear from faculty and current students about how Severn facilitates academic skill building, the adjustment to independence and increased accountability, and the integration of adolescent health and wellness topics into the curriculum.

    Join us for this one-hour information session (including time for Q&A), followed by an optional campus tour.

    This event is for parents only.
