CURRENT Student Re-Enrollment Ends THIS THURSDAY!

Re-enrollment closes on Thursday, December 5 for current Maeser students who will be returning for the 2020-21 school year. To secure your student’s spot at Maeser for the coming year, please visit our front office during office hours to submit the required re-enrollment paperwork and your $50 re-enrollment deposit.

Please note: Out of respect for our front office staff and their family time, we will NOT be taking re-enrollment paperwork after 3:45pm Mon-Thurs.

The $50 re-enrollment deposit can be paid online through our fee payment system, but you must still come in to the front office to fill out and sign the required paperwork. Check your email for the series of re-enrollment tips we’ve been sending out all this week!

Re-enrollment must be completed by this Thursday, December 5, 2019. This allows us to plan for the number of open spots we can offer to new students in our enrollment lottery in February. For the past several years, our wait list has far exceeded the number of seats available at Maeser, so we want to be sure your Maeser student has a spot reserved for next year!

REMEMBER: DO NOT submit an online application for your CURRENT Maeser student — online applications are for NEW students only. Re-enrollment must be completed in person in the front office.

SENIORS: Order Your Graduation Supplies!

It’s time to start preparing for graduation!

In order to avoid the hassle of ordering late AND to avoid increased pricing and rush shipping charges, please go to Jostens: Cap & Gown order to order caps and gowns, tassels, announcements, rings, etc.

Don’t let a late graduation apparel order add stress to your senior’s graduation — plan ahead and place your order soon.
