Enrollment & Registration
The purpose of the orientation is to provide parents with detailed information about Renaissance in order to make sure it is the right choice for your student and family.
If you have attended an orientation within the last two years you do not need to attend another orientation (please email our Registrar, Sheila Marino, with your name and orientation year so we can verify your attendance. Please allow one week for a response.
Orientations are for parents only; please have at least one parent attend an Orientation and plan to stay the full hour. The last half-hour will be dedicated to Questions and Answers.
We currently DO NOT have any additional Orientations scheduled at this time. If you would like to be notified when we have scheduled additional Orientations, please complete the Orientation Notification link and we will email you.
In the event of inclement weather, Renaissance will follow the Douglas County School District protocol on weather closures.
In the event that school is closed or after-school activities are cancelled, the Parent Orientation will also be cancelled. You may then sign up for another orientation date that works for you.
Renaissance is part of the Douglas County High School feeder area - Castle Rock.
Please go to the Douglas County Weather Closure Information Page to obtain information.
