As of November 28, Trekkers has officially opened their 7th grade application process to all current 7th grade students living in Thomaston, Cushing, St. George, South Thomaston, Owls Head and Rockland. The enrollment period will extend from November 28, 2017 to the deadline of February 2nd, 2018. Applications must postmarked by February 2nd or received at the Trekkers office by 5:00pm February 2nd to be considered on time. Any students who apply after February 2nd will be added to the waiting list until a spot becomes available.
If Trekkers receives more than 40 applications by February 2nd, they will implement a lottery system with all received applications to select students. This lottery is designed to produce a gender and school-balanced group. Their overall goal is to have 15 girls and 15 boys from Oceanside Middle School and five girls and five boys from the St. George School.
