The Cavalier Shop also provides each student with an English textbook for Freshman, Junior and Senior year. These books are on loan from the Maryland State Department of Education through the Nonpublic Student Textbook Program for the entire year and are returned after completion of their English exam. Through this program each student saves on average $80.  There is a fine for books that are not returned.

New and used books may be purchased through MBS Direct at the following website.
