Class of 2027 Updates
August 7, 2023
Hello, Class of 2027 Students and Parents:
Can you believe that the official start of your four-year journey through Prep begins next week? To help make your start as smooth as possible, your fun and lively Admissions & Recruitment team has prepared a list of important details below to keep in mind for today, this week and next week.
If you have any questions after reviewing them, let us know. We also encourage you to reach out to our colleagues in student support services, the student's counselor or a member of our high school office for answers, too.
In addition, we would like to remind parents to complete the action items noted in last Friday's 2023 Back to School To-Do List email from Mr. Ryberg, our academic principal.
Finally, thank you for allowing us to be your shepherds to Prep and please say hello when you're on campus!
