Parent Login to Blackbaud Required

This year we switched from JupiterEd to Blackbaud onCampus as our new Learning Management System (LMS). This new system has a host of additional features we hope will make it easier for you to access and manage your daughter's class information, grades, assignment, schedules, and extracurricular activities. If you have not logged in yet, please log in as soon as possible.

It is important you utilize your parent account (not your daughter's account) to ensure that you are receiving important notifications as well as updates about your daughter's progress.

Blackbaud is becoming our primary form of communication, so it is important that you check Blackbaud frequently for all of the latest updates. Contact [email protected] if you need help logging in.
