As of December 1st, Trekkers has officially opened our 7th grade application process to all current 7th grade students living in Thomaston, Cushing, St. George, South Thomaston, Owls Head and Rockland. Our enrollment period will extend from December 1st to our deadline on February 13th, 2017. Any students who apply after February 13th will be added to our waiting list until a spot becomes available.
Additionally, this year we are excited to announce Trekkers has 40 openings for seventh grade students. This is an increase from 30 students in past years. If Trekkers receives more than 40 applications by February 13th, we will then implement a lottery system to select students. This lottery is designed to produce a gender and school-balanced group. Our goal being 15 girls and 15 boys from Oceanside Middle School and five girls and five boys from St. George School.
