The school year is just beginning, so now is the time to start strong with solid study habits. Here are a few tips to get you going.
Choose your homework space.
You should set aside a place where you will complete your homework every day. This space should have good lighting, all the supplies you need and WiFi access for online assignments. Make sure this area is quiet and free from distractions: no TV, loud music, phone calls or siblings.
JupiterEd is an assignment book, calendar and planner all in one. Review the calendar weekly to plan ahead and schedule your study time to fit your needs. Completing large assignments before the due date and in small portions throughout the week is easy and will reduce stress. Keeping track of your assignments lets you choose how to spend your study time wisely and effectively.
Schedule study time.
With planning and diligence, you should be able to finish your daily homework before bedtime. Start your homework as soon as you get home and keep going until you’re finished. Stay focused and avoid distractions.
One proven technique for studying effectively is the Pomodoro Method: for every twenty–five minutes of studying, take a five–minute break to stretch, have a snack and refresh yourself before continuing. There are several Pomodoro–friendly timing apps available for iPads.
If you’re having trouble getting your homework done within a reasonable amount of time, you may need to cut down on after–school activities. Extracurricular activities are exactly that: extra. They should never prevent you from maintaining a good grade.
Follow the Honor Code.
At the beginning of the year, we have every student sign the Honor Code Pledge. By doing so, you agree to do your own homework and not to present another student’s work as your own. Your parents should never complete assignments for you. Never copy the answers from your peers or let them copy your work. Homework isn’t “busywork”; it’s an essential part of your education.
No matter how old you are, sleep is critical for success. Don’t stay up late on school nights. It is considered impolite to call, text or email your friends after 9:00pm because they need their sleep as well. You should get eight to twelve hours of sleep.
Ask for help.
If you’re struggling, don’t be afraid to ask your teachers for help. We also have an Academic Success Program from 3:00pm to 4:30pm, Monday through Thursday. The program is free for all full–paying Middle and High School students and available for a nominal fee to all others. Students or their parents may call the school at 703-759-5100 for details.
We hope our students and their families are having a fun summer and are keeping up with reading and engaging their minds so they can hit the ground running in September at our new Dulles campus.Read More

Summer is just around the corner! As many of you know, rising Third through Twelfth Grade students are expected to participate in the school’s summer reading program.
Our students can earn extra credit in their English class by completing up to four book reports. Each report turned in at the beginning of the school year counts as five extra credit points for one quarter.
Each book report should show that the student understood the book. Rising Third through Sixth Grade students should write a 200-word book report. Rising Seventh through Twelfth Grade students are required to write 500 words. All book reports should include information on the setting, time period, characters and plot, as well as the student’s opinion of the book as a whole.
Reading helps students avoid learning loss over vacation and prepare for the academic rigors of the next school year. Students who read consistently at an appropriate challenge level often experience a “learning leap” at the start of the next school year.
A good book helps to pass the time on long car trips and plane rides. Physical copies of books give students a more “hands-on” reading experience; e-books are available on many platforms and frequently offer in-app features such as dictionaries and digital highlighting or bookmarks.
Read to learn and read for fun! It’s the easiest way to get ahead for the 2018–2019 school year.
