Dear Confluence Academy-Old North Parents,

At Confluence Academy-Old North, we pride ourselves on providing a world-class education to students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Our motto, “No Excuses, Comets Can!” solidifies our commitment to providing your child a high-quality education through rigorous expectations for teaching and learning.

Our teachers use data-driven research-based instructional strategies that positively impacts student learning. The entire staff is dedicated to ensuring each child reaches his or her full potential. We plan to track student mastery to make sure each child entrusted to us achieves at the highest level possible. We are a Professional Learning Community that encourages the involvement of teachers, students and parents. We strongly believe that your support is vital and essential to your child’s success. We want you to be our partner as we “Move Forward” in providing your child a wonderful education. Please volunteer in our warm, caring and inviting school.  

Confluence Academy-Old North is proud of our second-year recognition as a statewide Positive Behavior Support school. We are also very proud of the fact that we were regional winners of the 2013 National Shell Science Lab Challenge that provided our school with science resources and materials for our classrooms. Our instruction is rigorous and enhanced by extracurricular activities designed to improve character in our students.  This year, our goal is to offer culturally relevant teaching that brings to the classroom your child’s background and experiences while making learning more relevant and meaningful. Confluence Academy-Old North has mentoring clubs, boys’ and girls’ basketball, cheerleading, literacy and math clubs, after-school enrichment, remedial tutoring and opportunities to become involved in Scouts. We also offer annual field trips out-of-state for our middle school scholars.   

Students are encouraged to learn through real-world applications and are encouraged to take risks in their learning. Confluence Academy-Old North is an exciting and wonderful place for students to learn! We are extremely elated that you chose our school as we believe parents are our partners!

Sincerely,

Dr. Sonya Murray
