All Juniors and Seniors interested in learning more about Longwood University are encouraged to attend the information session on Friday, Sept. 13th during I/E.

However, some fee waivers are available on a first come, first serve basis. 11th graders should take the PSAT if they are college bound as it also serves as a scholarship competition and prepares for the SAT's in the spring.
