    WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

    The Collaborative Team Activity is an opportunity for prospective students to participate in an activity that replicates common approaches to learning at NeoCity. This not only allows us to get to know your student, but for your student to see out inquiry-based approach. These sessions are 60-minutes and will be held in small groups.
