WELCOME BACK
The Office of Academic Affairs, a.k.a the Academic Office, is looking forward to a great school year. We are happy to help you with all of your academic questions related to…

  • Rosters (class schedules).
  • Progress Reports and Report Cards.
  • MAP testing and PSAT testing.
  • AP (Advanced Placement) Class contracts and registration.
  • Summer School.

ROSTER CHANGES: Last day 9/22
Any student would like to request a roster change should come to the Academic Office, room 110, on Monday, Thursday, or Friday from 2:30-3:30pm this week. Friday, 9/22, is the last day for all roster changes. We do not make changes for teacher preference or lunch period preference. For 10th – 12th grade students, there is a $25 fee for any change that does not align to their original course selection made in the Spring.

MAP TESTING
Beginning this week, 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students will take a test called the Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®). We give students MAP tests to determine each student’s instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year and from year to year in the areas of Reading, Language, and Math. Your child will take the tests on a computer in one of our computer labs. MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing.  And with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your student’s growth. Click here for more information. All 9th, 10th, and 11th graders will take the MAP test three times this year to measure growth from Fall to Winter and Winter to Spring.

Smart Tuition sends all bills to your email on file, unless you choose to opt out and receive those bills by mail.  At this time, unless you registered later than May, your billing began in June. Your payments should be current through September 15. Smart Tuition charges a $30 late fee for each month that there is a past due balance. The Archdiocese will require us to suspend students from school and activities if there is a balance more than 60 days past due.

Additionally, athletic fees are $350 for football and $150 for Girls/Boys Soccer, Volleyball and Cross Country to all accounts for students on the roster provided by the Athletic Director. Contact the Tuition Office if your child is no longer participating.

Smart Aid is almost closed. If your bill is missing any financial aid, it is likely that you have not yet completed your financial aid application.  Please call me to see what you may be missing so we can finalize by September 25. Smart Aid will not accept any documents after this week and you will not be eligible for financial aid if the application is not fully processed.
