Registering for the Academy on Saturday, January 23, 2016 in Vancouver at Columbia Springs

We’re so happy–and sad–to announce that space in the Vancouver Academy is now closed, filled to overflowing! Please consider attending the Portland Academy–this can be an excused absence from school if you are not in the Portland School district. Please contact vergun if you have any questions. Come play and learn with us in Portland!
