As we close this academic year, a full and demanding week of preparation and exams await MVA Upper and Middle-school students before the end of the school on Friday, June 5, 2015.  There is important information students should know regarding MVA dress code, lunch schedule and bus schedule for the exams.  If students anticipate having any situations, questions or individual considerations regarding scheduling, be sure to contact your academic adviser immediately.  All students, including Upper-school, are expected to be in school dress while taking exams or in the dining hall. 

Mr. Troy Urquhart, Dean of the MVA Upper-school, has informed the Montverde Academy Communications Office that MVA’s 2015 Second Semester Final Exam week for Upper-school underclassmen will begin today, Monday, June 1, and exams will run through 11:00 p.m. this Friday, June 5th.  On Monday, attendance for Upper School students is optional, since we will have a review day where teachers will be available in their classrooms, and students will have the chance to visit with their teachers as needed to ask questions and review. Exams will then begin on Tuesday following this schedule:

First Period Examinations – Tuesday, 8:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.

Second Period Examinations – Tuesday, 1:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (Bus departs campus at 4:10 p.m.)

Third Period Examinations – Wednesday, 8:00 a.m. -11:00 a.m.

Fourth Period Examinations – Wednesday, 1:00 a.m. -4:00 p.m. (Bus departs campus at 4:10 p.m.)

Seventh Period Examinations – Friday, 8:00 a.m. -11:00 a.m.  (Bus departs campus at 11:15 a.m. )

Students should arrive at least 15 minutes before the beginning of each exam. Students are not required to attend during periods when they do not have an exam – day students are not required to come to campus during those times, and boarding students are permitted to stay in the dormitory or to visit the Duncan Student Center.  If you and your family are making travel plans, please remember that exams cannot be rescheduled and that students must take their exams at the designated time.

MVA’s 2015 Second Semester Middle School Final Exams take place this week too. Today, MS students will attend all seven periods from 8:00 a.m. until 3:10 p.m. The semester exams will be given Tuesday, June 2, through Friday, June 5.
