School Supplies

At the Junior School, school supplies are provided in class by the classroom teacher.
At the Senior School, teachers inform students during the first few days of school about what supplies they require for their individual courses.
For Middle School students, the school supply can be purchased through the online store and picked up in August.
Throughout the year, basic school supplies for Grades 6 to 12 can be purchased at the Gryphon Door.
