'WEEK 1' at SKAGIT ACADEMY

How wonderful it has been to see students back on campus! The photo above features Academy Preppers enjoying lunch outside.


Each day has a different group of students, Mon-Thu, keeping things hopping on campus. We have had the privilege of adding new staff, new students, and new families to our school. HOW EXCITING!

All Academy 7-12 Student Have Advising During Flex on Tuesdays

All Academy 7-12 students will have advising with their classes on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Tuesdays of each month from 12:49-1:09 PM. If your student normally does not have class after lunch, please pick them up at 1:09 so that they can attend the required group advising sessions. Students will be discussing current progress (legal requirement), working on High School and Beyond assignments, and having 1x1 conversations with their advisor. Please email kjohnston@mvsd320.org if you have any questions.
