Spartan Online Hub
In the spring of 2020, the SPA community moved online. Our Spartan Online Hub was where SPA students, teachers, staff, and families gathered together, even as we kept our distance to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. It's how we stayed together, even while we were apart.
We hope you enjoy exploring the photos, videos, and stories of our community during this unprecedented time. Many, many thanks to all the students, faculty, parents, and alumni/ae who shared their stories with us and became a part of this unforgettable moment in SPA history.
