Back-to-School Nights 2019-20

The Academy Advantage: Purposely Different Back-To-School Events

We have chosen to host the Back-to-School Nights on two nights instead of four nights to minimize confusion. We have also tried to structure the nights to accommodate families that have children in different divisions. The Back-to-School Nights will be followed up with one-on-one Parent Connection Meetings, hosted by your child’s homeroom teacher or advisor, at the start of 2019-20 academic year. The Back-to-School night presentations will provide the proper framework for the Parent Connection Meetings, which are designed to foster a strong partnership between parents and teachers and best support each student’s opportunity to meet his or her full potential at the Academy.


These Back-to-School Night events are for parents and guardians only, please.
