TOUR AND APPLY
Open Houses offer prospective families the opportunity to hear our vision, tour the campus, and meet our educators. Join us for an information-packed evening where we will share highlights of each of our student-centered programs and take participants on a journey throughout our community campus, and answer any questions you may have!
As a COVID-19 safety precaution, masks are required for adults on the Verdi EcoSchool campus, both inside and outside. Masks are required for ages 5 and up only when touring inside spaces.

PARENT/GUARDIAN EDUCATION COURSE
VERDI ECOSCHOOL 101
Verdi EcoSchool 101 is a 2.25-hour course designed to inform prospective parents about the educational approaches, policies, and procedures at the Verdi EcoSchool and a necessary step in the application process. Since our practices differ in many ways from traditional schools, we require this course as a prerequisite to enrollment to provide clear expectations, answer your questions, and ensure best-fit between the school and family. Each parent/guardian of families seeking enrollment is required to attend a Verdi EcoSchool 101 course.
*The Verdi EcoSchool 101 Parent Education Course has been moved to an online video chat platform to honor COVID-19 social distancing protocols.
EDUCATOR PARENT MEET-AND-GREET
A meet-and-greet is a time for us to get to know your family better! The intention is for us to answer your questions 1-on-1, and to learn about your child(ren) as well as what type of learning environment you are looking for.
*Meet and Greets have been moved to online video chats to honor COVID-19 social distancing protocols.
STUDENT TRIAL DAY
If both school and family continue to feel that EcoSchool’s unique environment is a harmonious choice for the student, your educator will work with you to schedule a trial day. A trial day is a day in which your child will be dropped off at the school to experience a typical day in their prospective program to help assess if your child and family will find harmony at the Verdi EcoSchool.
The final step is to schedule a meet-and-greet with a school administrator. All parents/guardians involved in educational decision-making for students seeking enrollment are required to attend.
