Welcome back!
We are so excited to have our high school students back on campus Monday! I am available Monday-Thursday to set up times to meet with students and families. Please don't hesitate to reach out.
As you can see by announcement below, we are hosting a Senior Parent Night and Financial Aid/FAFSA workshop next Thursday, October 8th.
The FAFSA for the 2020-21 school year opens for applications today, October 1st. A student must file a FAFSA each year they attend college if they want to be considered for financial aid/scholarships, etc.
This year we will be conducting our standardized testing of the PSAT 9, PSAT 10 and PSAT/NMSQT on a new test date that was just released by the Collegboard. Our students will now test on January 26, 2021 instead of the traditional October test date. Please mark this important date on your calendars now and avoid any absences due to appointments, vacations, etc.
Please don’t hesitate to give me a call if you have any questions or concerns!
