HHS is a test center for the June test. Sign up early to secure a seat. Registration is due by May 6. However, we anticipate our site filling up by mid-April.
If you can't afford the registration fee for the ACT or ACT with writing, you may be eligible for an ACT fee waiver. See your school counselor for additional information.
Senior Exit Meetings Coming Soon
Final transcripts will be sent out as soon as grades are finalized, posted and transcripts are processed. This is typically completed by June 15th.
Be sure to contact potential college admission representatives to find out required transfer scores. You can also utilize College Board's AP credit policy Search at: https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/creditandplacement/search-credit-policies
All other students will receive a class list this summer. Schedule changes will occur the first three days of school. Changes can only be made if a student did not request the scheduled course. Level changes require approval from teacher and parent.
