Welcome Wildcat Dinner is April 22
We are excited to have you on campus, together for the first time! We are allowed to host up to 100 for this event, and the protocols require assigned seating. Please send us the name of each person attending.
Students are welcome to arrive at 4:30PM for activities. Parents, a meeting will begin at 5:15PM with Mr. Grisin and Ms. White. Dinner is served at 6PM. We understand family life is busy. Attending all or part of the afternoon’s lineup is better than none!
Course Request forms are now available on your Enrollment Checklist
Please download the pdf, mark your preferred courses, and upload the document into your enrollment portal. Course Request forms should be submitted by April 30.
Counselors will review your course request forms and reach out to you to schedule a meeting in June. If you are not able to meet in June, appointments will also be available in late July and early August.
Placement tests in May
If you are interested in an advanced math or English course, or are already fluent in Spanish, then we encourage students to take the placement tests. Our preference is that you take the placement tests even if you are not interested in honors level courses. We seek to ensure that students are challenged at the appropriate levels.
Welcome to Wildcat Weekly
Sent on Friday afternoons, this is a recap of recent events, as well as a look forward for the entire school community. You should receive this around 4PM. If you don’t, or if there are other email addresses you’d like to add to the email list, then click here to sign up for the WW.
This document outlines the school year and details all holidays and breaks. A copy of this can be found on Plus Portals, which you can access from the homepage by clicking either the student or parent portal links. A link to the document is also available at the top of this page.
The Booklist, Villanova polos and PE Uniforms
Once we process the course request forms for new students, along with the results of the placement tests, we will send the course list via email. This is the list of classes you will be attending and you will receive your class schedule (the exact order of these classes) via email before the first day of school. The course list allows you to begin purchasing your books. More information will come regarding the booklist in early June. We will also send information at that time about ordering you Villanova polos from Dennis uniforms, as well as PE uniforms for the Fit for Life class.
Welcome to high school! The supplies that students will need are far simpler than elementary school. On the first day of school, teachers will go over their course syllabus, including any necessary supplies, and give the student the upcoming weekend to obtain necessities. Arriving with pen, pencil, and paper is sufficient for the start of school.
After the first day of school, you will receive access to Plus Portals, the student and parent portal to check students’ grades. Any important information that is needed prior to the first day of school, such as the booklist or the anticipated calendar, can be found on Plus Portals homepage without logging in.
A list of coaches will be made available to new students and families toward the end of the year. Some sports conduct summer practice. Students may engage in these activities once 1) they have a sports medical examination complete and 2) both Villanova and your current school have had the last day of school.
While residents check in August 2-4, Orientation for all students will be on Saturday, August 14, starting at 10AM. Save the Date! Lunch will be provided for all families, and we hope to have our traditional pool party!
