On Wednesday, January 25 at 6:30 pm, Lincoln Academy will host an Eighth Grade Info Night to assist families of incoming LA freshman and transfer students with the registration and course selection process. For the first-time, guidance counselors will offer an evening of working sessions with families to answer individual questions about registering for classes at Lincoln Academy.
“In the past several years we have had increasing interest from eighth grade parents who want to talk about the nuts and bolts of registering for high school,” explained Lincoln Academy’s Director of Counseling and Studies, Sarah Wills-Viega. “Eighth Grade Family Night, which happened in November, includes a tour and overview of Lincoln Academy, for families to get a sense of the school’s campus layout and educational philosophies. This event in January will give prospective students and parents a chance to dig deeper into questions about registration, scheduling, and curriculum decisions, including choices about course levels and electives.”
At the January 25 event, incoming LA families will have a chance to sit down with a guidance counselor who is familiar with the LA curriculum and discuss each student’s academic plan and course choices. “This is an opportunity for parents to learn more about the course selection process,” continued Wills-Viega. “Most incoming students meet with LA Guidance Counselors when we visit their sending schools, but this is the first time we are hosting an event to meet individually with incoming students and their parents.”
No registration is necessary for Eighth Grade Info Night. Interested families should plan to arrive at the LA Dining Commons at 6:30 pm. A brief overview of the registration and course selection process will be provided, followed by time for individual sessions. If families have questions about the event they can call the LA Guidance Office at 563-3596 ext. 125 or 128, or see the Info Night Facebook Event Page.
