Junior/Senior Planning Calendar & Senior Checklist:

A postsecondary planning calendar is located on our website and was emailed to all juniors and seniors to help them through the postsecondary process on a monthly basis. This is a great resource to put on the refrigerator or in a locker! Feel free to contact your student’s counselor if you have additional questions.

College Applications:

Seniors should apply to the college of their choice online and request their transcripts be sent electronically through their Naviance account. Once we have processed their transcript request, students will see that their transcript has been submitted in their Naviance account and in their college application portal. We encourage all seniors to complete their college applications and request their transcripts be processed prior to fall break.
