Bobby and Quest both earned their blue mountain on the same day [...]

Student Government Elections

Our students love to be able to make decisions about their school so we encourage all students to run for our student government. Speeches give students a chance to share with their fellow classmates the changes they would make and ask for a chance to be able to represent them. It also allows students to practice their public speaking skills. After the speeches, students then vote on which candidate they think would best represent them!

Fly Brave’s mission is focused on creating employment programs for adults with autism when [...]
