NOVA School exists not only to produce future leaders, innovators and engaged citizens, but to also provide valuable programs and opportunities to the greater community. 

From our open-to-the-public speaker series, DISCOVERIES Summer Camp and community events to making the NOVA campus available for the use of clubs, religious groups and private life-cycle events, NOVA sets the example for its students by being a positive asset for the region.

Upcoming NOVA School Community Events:

    Parent Discussion Group   


Resumes in the Fall!

Back by popular demand, the Parent Discussion Group will meets monthly from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at NOVA School’s campus located at 2020 22nd Ave SE, Olympia, WA 98501. Facilitated by Barbara Mitchell Hutton, NOVA Head of School, the Parent Discussion Group is designed to address challenges, joys and concerns inherent in the complexities of parenting of highly capable children. The exchange among parents is supportive and informative and adds to the richness of the discussion.

A prior participant said this about the benefit of the discussion group: “You don't want to miss this opportunity to join our community in learning how to deepen and broaden your experience with your child and yourself. Barbara Mitchell Hutton is a master, full of insight and wisdom from years of working on the leading edge of gifted education.”

The foundation books for this discussion group is Living with Intensity (Daniels and Piechowski, 2009) and A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Education (Webb, 2007). There will be copies to check out and other resources will be provided as topics of interest develop.

This series is free. Attendance at each group meeting is not required. Advance registration is helpful for planning but not required.
