Welcome to your SENIOR YEAR!
Seniors & Families – Congratulations! We are just about to finish your senior’s high school years. It’s an emotional and exciting time, and we know
the activities and dates can really sneak up on you. Please feel free at anytime to call the office (662)328-7888 with questions or clarification.
Listed below are some notes you will need as we prepare our Senior Chapel and Graduation activities.
We aim to strengthen relationships between School alumnae, students, and soon-to-be alumnae while maximizing potential in both personal and professional lives.
The balance Secondary School maintains between honoring the past and remaining committed to the future is one of its most compelling attributes. We hope you’ll stay in touch, join our network, and bolster our community by supporting Secondary School students today.
