TEXTBOOKS/P.E. UNIFORMS
Students may purchase used and new textbooks, gym uniforms and gym locker padlocks at the Textbook Services Center. These may be charged to the students account during the first week of each semester. Textbooks that are to be reused are repurchased and credited to the student's account at the end of the school year. Repurchase prices are set at 60% of the last price, or less if in poor condition.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES AND EXTRA CHARGES
The school calendar includes activities, trips and tours that are planned as meaningful options in addition to the regular academy program. Because student involvement in these experiences is optional, the cost of each activity is borne by the student participants through function fees paid by check or e in cash calculated for each activity. A list of these charges is published annually in the Co-curricular Planning Guide, which is mailed to each parent/guardian. >> DOWNLOAD FORM
