School Counselor Update
Highland High School- April 2021
State SAT Testing- ALL Juniors-April 13th
This is a graduation requirement.
Room assignments are posted on the School Counseling Office Windows. Students should have completed a pre-bubble in with demographic information and selected up to 4 colleges to send their score report.
All other students have a college/career day.
Illinois State Science Assessment- ISA- Juniors
This is a computer based science test.
Junior testing will occur in the science hallway. Seniors will not attend school- they have a college/ career day. Freshman and Sophomores will attend the regular school day (Red hours: 1, 2, 6 and 7).
The ISA aligns with our new Illinois Learning Standards in science. This assessment helps families understand how well students are performing academically and see whether they are on track to succeed in college. The ISA represents Illinois’ commitment to preparing all students for college and careers, including in the high-demand science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. The assessment also satisfies federal accountability requirements.
Senior Decision Day- Education, Employment, Enlistment- April 30th

Senior Exit Meetings
Seniors can request FREE final transcripts through their parchment accounts until July 31. Beginning August 1 they will be charged a nominal fee.
School Counselors will meet with Seniors the end of April to complete their exit interview surveys. At this meeting seniors report plans for after high school and request final transcripts. Information will also be "assigned" in Google Classroom. Dual credit students will need to request SWIC and/or SLU transcripts directly from them as well.
Any remote student who wishes to have a Google Meet needs to reach out to their counselor for an appointment.
