Have Your 2023-24 Plans Changed?

If your plans for 2023-24 enrollment have changed and your student will not be attending Maeser Prep, please contact us ASAP to let us know by emailing us at — please include your student’s name, their 2023-24 grade, and the school they will be attending next year. We are sending out record requests for our new students and want to help you avoid having your student’s school file sent to the wrong school. We are also creating schedules for next year and want to make sure students can get into the classes they’ve requested.

Thanks so much for your help in keeping our records up to date!
