High Point Academy recently welcomed students to the new academic year. The theme for the close-knit community this year is “Communication and Collaboration: Better Together.” Students enjoyed having their pictures taken with their families at a superhero photo booth. Many smiling faces reflected the excitement of the first day of school. High Point is a co-educational K-8 independent school in Pasadena whose mission is to “Awaken the Joy of Learning” in each student. For information, visit HighPointAcademy.org.
