The OLSH Class of 2026 Welcome Night was held on May 11, 2022 for parents/guardians and incoming students. Welcome Night information packets were distributed in a purple folder at this event, with some mailed home to those who RSVP'd but were unable to attend. (This packet included the student's course list, placement test results, and school supply/reading list, among other items.)
If you were unable to attend Welcome Night or were not yet enrolled at OLSH, please contact Mrs. Jessica Sellman at [email protected] to obtain a copy of the materials.
All families who applied for tuition assistance through OLSH's financial aid program (applications due March 15) received notification of their aid awards in April and early May. If you applied after the deadline, your application is reviewed after FACTS's two-week processing time.
If you have not yet applied for aid through OLSH but are still deciding on your child's high school destination, please complete the FACTS Application for Grant and Aid, found here: https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/4H2YY. We will continue to accept applications for financial aid, until all resources are exhausted. You can find answers to some of the most common aid and tuition questions on our FAQs page, located at www.olsh.org/apps/pages/financialfaqs.
All families enrolling in the Class of 2026 must complete their Enrollment Contracts in Blackbaud, select a payment plan, and submit the Administrative Fee ($20 or $50) by August 1. Please do this as soon as possible so as not to negatively impact your child's fall enrollment. To log in to Blackbaud, go to https://olsh.myschoolapp.com and enter your login credentials (created when you submitted your application for admission).
Selecting a plan will ensure that you have control over the frequency and date your tuition payments occur. Monthly payments may begin July 2022 (12-month plans) or September 2022 (10-month plans), and run through the academic year, ending in June 2023. You may also select quarterly, semi-annual, or annual payment options. Annual payment (one-time pay) made in August will also receive a $100 discount off tuition. You can access your payment history, plan details, and account balance at any time by logging into your child's Blackbaud account, selecting the Resources tab, and clicking on the Tuition Management button.
If you do not have access to an Enrollment Contract in your child's account, we may be missing a key piece of their admissions information, such as records from their previous school or their admissions deposit. Please contact Mrs. Jessica Sellman at [email protected] for more information.
If you have not made your course selections for the fall semester, or would like to change any of your already-selected courses or electives, please contact your school counselor directly to start this process. They are also available to discuss your placement test results, course readiness, the ALLI program, or any other options to help you succeed in high school and beyond!
All students entering the freshman class this fall are invited to participate in an optional high school readiness course, taught by OLSH teachers! Classes will be subject to size limits, and families can choose one of our two sessions. Both sessions meet on Monday AND Tuesday. The course is $35 per student.
Session 1: 9:00 to 11:00 am
Session 2: 12:00 to 2:00 pm
