The Expedition School is excited to announce that we have secured a lease for a facility and will be opening doors to students on August 4th, 2014! The school will be located in the Eno River Mill at 437 Dimmocks Mill Road in Hillsborough, NC. This location is only steps away from Gold Park and the Eno River which will offer our students opportunities to expand their learning beyond the classroom walls. The mill is being restored to it's historic beauty by Hedgehog Holdings, a Historic re-development group and by Belk Architecture to include lots of natural light, large classrooms, a multi-purpose room and music room. The school will expand into the mill as the school grows.
We are fundraising to purchase hands-on science and math tools and manipulatives and science and math classroom libraries ! Join our fundraising campaign today! Click below.

Please note: Email responses may take several days. We will be hosting several information sessions over the next several months. We encourage attendance to one of these to become more familiar with the school, gather information and get answers to questions. The website will also be updated as progress is made. Thanks!
