For the past 62 years, the Academy of Our Lady of Guam once again opened its doors to 106 young women who are beginning their first year of high school.  Entering high school is an exciting time, full of change and new experiences.  Yet, it can also be an overwhelming experience, not just for the students, but for their parents as well.

In order to help ease the anxiety that goes hand in hand with this milestone in life, and understanding that their students are more likely to succeed when their parents are involved in their school activities, the Academy also opened its doors, hallways, and classrooms to the parents of the incoming freshmen on Friday, August 19, allowing them the opportunity to meet their daughter’s teachers, the school’s staff and administration, as well as their daughter’s peers.  Welcome, Class of 2015!
