All-School Service Project
 
 
 
 
During March we will engage in a school-wide service project for Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), a worldwide ministry of Anabaptist churches sharing God's love and compassion by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice. 

MCC’s warehouse inventory has been significantly depleted due to the number of recent crisis situations around the world. We will be doing a one-time clothing drive for Syrian refugees living in Lebanon as well as collecting for MCC relief kits to be distributed worldwide. The collection will run through March 23.

There are days when it isn’t easy working with teenagers. Between the negatives of social media, “normal” high school drama, and the difficulties that come with being that age, these times can be trying. As parents, you know this much better than me. Our students are normal teens. They make the mistakes that teenagers make. Some of them are relatively harmless; others are more serious.

Because of this reality, it is equally if not more important for us to celebrate and acknowledge the good that our students do and experience. On our campuses, there is much to celebrate.

On the Friday before Presidents’ Day weekend, members of our community had the privilege to...  Read more

College preparation begins with your              high school schedule 
The first step on the road to college begins with the courses students take in high school. The first thing colleges look at is the high school transcript. Schools look for four years of solid course work in a basic curriculum. Although standardized tests are important in the application process, the high school transcript measures a student’s ability and motivation over four years. 
 
What do admissions officers look for in a high school transcript? 
Generally, admissions counselors are looking to evaluate:
Grades: Are they on an upward trend?
High School: What are its academic qualities?
G.P.A.: Cumulative Grade Point Average and Current Grade Point Average
Test Scores: SAT I, ACT, SAT II. How does the student compare to other students from different schools?
Senior Year: Is the student taking challenging academic curriculum and being successful?
