Sign and Submit the Enrollment Agreement and Deposit

It's important that both parents sign the Enrollment Agreement and return their deposit to the Office of Admission. The following steps must be taken after the Enrollment Agreement is completed and the deposit is received.

Create a Parent Portal Account

Once a family accepts the offer of admission, the Business Office sends an email regarding the Parent Portal. It is a secure area where personalized pages called portals are available to each family. There you will find school updates, parent resources, forms, deadlines, view the family directory, your student's schedule, homework and much more. We strongly encourage you to make a habit of logging into the portal often to keep up to date.
