Open Connections

PROSPECTIVE FAMILIES: Open Connections continues to be open, virtually. We recognize that springtime is often when prospective families tour the OC campus and come for an in-person interview. While our physical campus is closed for the time being, we ARE continuing to conduct interviews via Zoom or FaceTime. If you are considering enrollment for Fall 2020, we encourage you to take advantage of this option! To learn more about setting up a virtual interview, please click the "Inquire" link. We look forward to “meeting” you and showing you all that OC has to offer. Thank you for your interest in Open Connections! CURRENT FAMILIES: Please check your email for the kick-off schedule for distance learning!

I attribute much of the "idyllic childhood" of my youth . . . to time spent at OC.

I attribute much of the "idyllic childhood" my son and daughter experienced to the many joyful years they spent learning and growing and exploring at Open Connections! As an OC family we learned so much about the language we use with each other and how important our words are in building confidence, self-esteem, and trust in one another. As young people, Sean and Alyssa gained practical and interpersonal experiences that helped shape their interests in life. They are both grown - Alyssa's in college and Sean is beyond now. The OC memories and friendships are still very meaningful to our family.
