Financial Assistance

Financial Assistance Applications are now available for the 2024-2025 school year. The applications are available here. The deadline for completing the application is March 3, 2024.



Cell phone and Smartwatch Policy: New

We have added an additional policy to ensure academic integrity during block exams. Students may not have a cell phone or smartwatch in any examination room. They must leave their devices in their lockers. If a student has a phone or watch with her during an exam she is in danger of receiving a zero on her block exam. This policy has, and will be communicated to students until the beginning of the exam session. 

Time to purchase books for Block 3

Can you believe we’re nearing the end of block 2 already? Block 3 will require new textbooks for new courses; please check with your Blazers to see what is needed for the second semester.  It is imperative that students have textbooks in hand on the first day of classes, January 18, 2024.
