The 2022 yearbook is now on available for preorders! The yearbook is currently being designed by the LA students on the 2022 yearbook staff and will be ready for delivery in May.
Seniors do not need to purchase a yearbook, because every senior will get a book as part of a bundled senior fee that will also cover their cap and gown. More info on that coming soon!
- Grades 9-11 are invited to purchase a yearbook at the Early Bird price of $45 (price will go to $50 on January 1).
- Senior parents are invited to purchase a parent ad or message.
- Local business owners are encouraged to purchase a business ad.
Yearbook and ad purchases can be made online using this link.

SENIORS: To Report, or Not to Report Testing? That is the Question.
Choose your own adventure in reporting your SAT scores (or not). Here are the steps:
- Go to the school’s admission website to find out if they are testing optional and if the major/program that you are applying for is testing optional. Sometimes schools are testing optional, but they will require tests for Nursing, Engineering, or another specific program.
- If your school is testing optional, talk with your counselor about your test scores and if it is in your best interest to submit your tests. This is a strategic move and we want to take advantage of this opportunity.
