New School Update


There are a number of charter school organizations attempting to come into Volusia County.  As you may have seen on our website, the Ivy Hawn organization is beginning the process of expanding our schools.  The intent is a new high school and a new separate middle school in Orange City in 2018.  The high school will be the “Ivy Hawn High School of the Arts and Sciences” and the middle school will be the “Ivy Hawn Middle School of Arts and Technology”.  Please do not confuse our projected new school with any others!  Everything connected to us will have the “Ivy Hawn” name.  If you have any questions, please contact us at ivyhawnhighschool@gmail.com

E-Rate Parent Survey

Dear Parents, the attached survey plays an important part in the betterment of your child’s education at Ivy Hawn Charter School of the Arts!  By completing this survey, we will be eligible to receive funds from a federal program called E-Rate.  These funds must be used to develop and upgrade programs as well as upgrades to our actual hardware.
