Change For a Change
For the month of November, Buist Academy will be raising money to send to the Lowcountry Food Bank to provide meals for families on Thanksgiving. There will be a bucket in each classroom and the office where students and parents can drop spare change. All types of change will be accepted. Our goal is to raise $250, which will provide food for 1500 meals. Bring in your change to make a change!
Buist Academy High School Information Fair
The Buist Academy High School Information Fair will be held on Thursday, January 7th from 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm in the gym. All 6th through 8th grade students and their parents are invited for this drop-in event. There will be a variety of high schools participating in this event including private schools, boarding schools and our local public schools. We hope that you will be able to join us for this informative event!
School Uniform Policy
Please be mindful of the Buist Academy School Uniform Policy which can be found on page 12 of the Parent-Student handbook. We have noticed that many of our students are not following the policy, especially the sock policy which requires socks to be solid navy, khaki or white (middle school includes solid black). Please make sure that your child follows the policy that is in place. Thank you.
