Why would I want to use RSS?
If you want to get the latest news from the Academy or would like to read The Quill, the online newspaper of the Upper School, or get the latest photos taken by the Head of School.
How do I use RSS?
You need two things -- a “feed” and a “reader.” Think of it as a television channel; you need a TV and the signal. A link to a list of available feeds follows this paragraph. We recommend that you view our RSS feeds in either your Outlook, MacMail, or Google Feed Reader. You can click on any of the links below to get more detailed instructions on how to use these readers. Once you have your reader set up, just copy and paste the feed from the URL address bar, and insert it into your reader. Voila.

Who manages RSS feeds at school?
RSS feeds are managed by the Chair of the Computer Science and Technology Department, Dolores Hayes.
Both the radio wave icon and the blue “RSS” icon are indicators that an RSS feed is available. Usually, you can click on either, and the RSS feed will appear in your browser window.
