Genesis Classical Academy to Hold Informational Meeting

Residents in the Winnebago area will have a chance to see what their new school, Genesis Classical Academy, is all about at a public meeting to be held on Thursday, June 25, 2015. Parents of potential students and those wishing to invest in our children and our region are invited for a presentation on classical Christian education and the new school opening in the fall of 2015. Organizers are hosting the meeting in Dikkers Hall at Parker Oaks, 211 6th St NW, Winnebago, MN beginning at 6:30 p.m. A complimentary meal will be served followed by a one-hour informational meeting.

Guest speaker, Rebekah Hagstrom, Headmaster at Liberty Classical Academy in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, will also be presenting. Hagstrom was an original founder of Liberty, a similar classical school that was started in 2003. She will provide an overview of the classical education model that is used at Liberty and is being used as a model for the new school in Winnebago.

Materials will be available for parents considering this new educational option. Those interested in enrollment will be able to sign up at the meeting.
