recent news & updates

There has been a change in the start of school for next year.

Students’ first day will be Tuesday, August 29, 2023. Administration felt that it would give us more flexibility to work with our schedules of three different levels and also give us traditional snow days on our schedule and fulfill the hour requirement of non-public schools. We also will have the ability to schedule a longer break at Christmas and end in early June. Lastly, we are one of the last schools in the Lehigh Valley to transition to start before Labor Day. We felt it helps in other areas outside of LCA to be aligned with other schools. 

We wanted you to know as early as possible so you could plan vacation accordingly.

Spirit Wear Store is OPEN!

The spirit sale is OPEN!!  

It is ONLY open through 1/30 — so GO check it out now.  Everything will be projected for delivery in February.

COngratulations to Jacob Lewis!

A huge congratulations goes out to Sophomore Jacob Lewis for winning Athlete of the week with MaxPreps!

(This is contingent to the referral staying for the entire school year.)
