Celebrate the MSC Community

MSC is a learning enterprise that goes far beyond the classrooms and the walls of the venerable Joan of Arc Building. The friendships forged among families, teachers and staff help to sustain our curiosity and inspire new explorations.

MSC special events is an annual series of classes, workshops and performances offered by and for the MSC community. 100% of Special Event participation fees go to "Friends of MSC," (a 501c3 tax exempt corporation), but the main goal is celebration of community - of choosing to walk the path of educating our children together.
