Course Selection Kick-Off

Counselors spoke with all freshmen, sophomores and juniors during days G and H to walk students through the Course Selection Process which is underway. Counselors are readily available to meet with their students through the course selection period. As always, parents should contact their son's counselor with questions.

 

Senior Mid-Year reports to Colleges

Seniors and senior parents please note that Mid-Year Reports will be sent to all colleges by the end of next week. Colleges are sending prompts, however this is an automatic procedure - there is no need for students to request them of their counselor.
