FAQ's

List of 4 frequently asked questions.

  • How can I get information during the summer?

    The Admissions Office will be open this summer. You may also contact other school offices directly, although many will have reduced summer hours. See Important Contacts on this page. You will be receiving periodic emails with information and updates. You may also contact the Admissions Office with any additional questions.
  • How can I start getting connected now?

    There are many ways to get connected throughout the summer. Our Ambassador program connects you with an existing family that can act as a touch point during the summer for parent-to-parent communication. You will receive an email from Admissions about participating in the ambassador program. If you have specific questions about this program, contact Erica Pierre. We hope you will attend the events designed for your school level and also consider experiencing other on-campus opportunities like summer camps, summer athletics or summer academic classes. These opportunities will vary depending on the age of the student.
  • How can I select my courses (grades 6-12)?

    High School students will be contacted by High School Counselors Mitchell Baker or Donna Pate to set up times to discuss schedules.

    Middle School students should share their elective choices with Misty Wilson, Middle School Counselor. Preliminary schedules for middle school students will be shared in June. If you have questions about your schedule or are interested in making changes, you may contact Lauren Hollier, the Middle School Academic Dean, to discuss academic questions.
  • When can I get involved with athletics?

    If you have enrolled, you may begin participating in workouts with individual teams. If you have questions about when specific tryouts, practices or workouts occur, contact Kathy Sisco in the Athletic Office.
