College Credit Plus Deadline is May 3rd, 2021

Ohio’s College Credit Plus allows qualified students in grades 7-12 to earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses from community colleges or universities. Taking a college course from a public college or university through College Credit Plus is free. That means there is no cost for tuition, books or fees. If a student chooses to attend a private college or university, there may be costs. The college will admit you based on your college-readiness in one or more subject areas. Your school counselor can help you understand your options, deadlines, and how to proceed. You may not participate in the College Credit Plus program beyond your anticipated high school graduation date. If you fail a class or withdraw after 14 days, you will have to pay for the expenses. If you are interested you must turn in your Intent To Participate Letter by May 3, 2021. Instructions on how to apply and links to forms are here Link to CCP Presentation Slides.

PROM - Deadline to Purchase Tickets 5/7/21

The date for PROM and after prom will be on Sunday June 6th from 6PM to 12AM.

Prom will begin at 6PM and we are excited to announce that we will have food trucks there and an outdoor dining area. Thank you to the City of Strongsville for donating tables for the event.

The prom will go from 6:00 to 8:30 and then students can take a 30 minute break to change and come back for after prom from 9-12.

Ticket Sales:

April 19- May 7th- excluding the EOC days. Tickets are $50 and will include both Prom and after prom. The ticket includes dinner and a dessert. Students can bring extra money if they want additional food although After Prom will have food as well.

The junior student council members will sell them during lunches in the cafeteria.

There will be DJ and the dance floor will be the football field. We will have multiple photo booths, music all night, and other after prom surprises.

We are excited about the creativity and energy this year's prom will have and a huge thank you goes out to Brittany Sermak, Jen Orlosky, and Dan Foust for their time and effort in getting this idea to reality.

There will be no high heels on our football field so we will provide flip flops, while dancing, to any student who wants to wear heels to the dance. We encourage wedges which will not damage the field.
