2017-2018 School Year

The Course Catalog, School Year Calendar, and Semester I schedule have been posted under the student tab of this website. All students and parents should take a look at the course offerings to start planning for the courses they will be signing up for on the first day of school. This year's Course Catalog is a little different as it contains all of the courses that will be offered, which semester they will be offered, who is instructing the courses, and what time of day the course will take place. By comparing the Semester I schedule and the Course Catalog, parents and students will get a good idea of what the student's day will look like. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Friel by email, as Mr. Azzaro is out of the office for the summer.
