Meal Program

Highlands offers several wholesome and nutritious meal options for students 12-months-old through eighth grade. The Family Center serves two snacks per day and a hot lunch, catered on campus. Students in four-year-old kindergarten through eighth grade have the option of daily hot lunches.

For the 2021-2022 school year, Highlands is excited to partner with  Christian Catering. For more information about their business, history, and contacts, please visit their website.


Snacks and meals in the Family Center are standardized and part of annual tuition. For the four-year-old kindergarten through eighth grade lunch program, families use an online ordering system. The process for ordering is the following:

  1. Locate the appropriate monthly menu in the panel on the lower right-hand side of this page to peruse the options for the current month. The ordering portal closes on the 30th of the month at 1PM. 
  2. Access your online account by following the lunch order link. If you have not created an account, please create an account and indicate your classroom/homeroom teacher's name. (If you do not know your homeroom teacher, indicate "Unknown" and return to complete this field later.)
  3. From the landing page, click on the order tab under your child's name to display the menu options for each week of the month. A "right click" will allow you to access the menu for the next week.
  4. Place your full monthly order and follow the check-out procedure. If paying by credit card, a 5% processing fee will be added to your order.

If your child is ABSENT from school due to scheduled absence or illness, log into your account by 7:30 a.m. to cancel the order and receive a credit on your account.

The SALAD BAR is now an extra item and not automatically included with the meal. It must be purchased to be included in your child's lunch.


The Family Center snacks and meals are served by the facility staff and served per plate, per child. Children have the option of additional portions or "seconds," if desired. 

In four-year-old kindergarten through eighth grade, each child's meal is prepared separately based upon the order provided by the parents. Upon arrival at the Blue Devil Bistro (dining hall), each child's plate will be appropriately marked with their name for quick, easy, and accurate service. CC staff expedite the orders and teachers and administrators assist and monitor distribution.

**Due to safety and hygiene protocols, lunches will not be available to students who have "forgotten" their lunch.**

**Due to safety and hygiene protocols, lunches catered into the classrooms and not served in the dining hall.**
