Scholarships & Awards

During September we have an awards ceremony to recognize students who have excelled in Academics during the previous school year.  Three times a year, after a reporting period, a mini award’s ceremony is held to recognize the ongoing academic achievements of students.  In June an achievement ceremony is held to recognize the outstanding efforts of students involved in athletics, community activities, and service to the school.
