Senior End of Year Schedule and Information


Linked here, please find this year's Promenade 2019 Photos! Our publications staff is still working to edit these photos (as some may still be a little blurry or need lighting adjustment through photoshop!) but we thought you would enjoy a sneak-peek at the photos! Keep checking back, as the student-photographers are busy editing and making these photos turn out as wonderful as possible!

You're more than welcome to download a copy for yourself and share out with friends and family!



All preliminary Senior Exam Exemption letters were delivered through 1st hour classes on Tuesday, May 7th. If a student's grade is under an appeal review, the letter notes that (and for which classes) with "Under Review". We will be making our final appeal decisions on Monday, May 13th and delivering those final decision letters on May 14th through 1st hour classes. All decisions on appeals is final - and, after that decision, we have to move forward with final exam planning. Thank you for supporting this entire process, as we firmly believe this is a positive way to encourage our seniors to remain focused!

CURRENT JUNIORS: Mark Your Calendars for the FALL 2019!!!

Senior College Application Night will be held on Tuesday August 20th 2019 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in the Auditorium. This program will outline the logistics of applying to college and will include a brief Common Application tutorial and detailed instructions for using SCOIR throughout the college application process. Though attendance isn’t mandatory, all seniors are strongly encouraged to attend. Parents are encouraged to attend as well. Even though parents may not be new to the college application process, the Class of 2020 will be the first to use SCOIR to process and send all of their college application materials. We want to be sure everyone has the information they need to make college application season smooth and stress free!

Financial Aid Information Night will be held on Tuesday, September 24th 2019 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in the Auditorium. This program will provide families with an understanding of how families’ financial need is determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the CSS Profile and how colleges use that information to award need-based financial aid. This year’s presenter will be Susan Teerink, the Associate Vice Provost for Financial Aid and Enrollment Services at Marquette University. This program is open to students and parents from all grade levels, however junior and senior families are strongly encouraged to attend.

Need a SPORTS PHYSICAL? Do we have a DEAL for YOU! (and Marian!)

Pradeep N Raju MD, from OrthoIllinois, is extending an AMAZING deal for SPORTS PHYSICALS! Please read his message and perhaps this will work with your schedule (and budget) AND it helps Marian Central!

I just wanted to extend an opportunity to the schools in our area for sports physicals at Orthoillinois in Algonquin this summer, as either mass physicals or at walk-in convenience. Each physical would be $10 and streamlined at our Algonquin location through Injury Express. The money from the physicals would go back in one check to the school to be utilized by your athletic department. Your athletes also have the option to come during regular office hours for their physical 8-8 M-F and 10-4 Saturday, this fee will also by directed back to the individuals school. Thank you for allowing me, over the last 8 months, to care for your athletes.

For the ones who do not know me, I grew up in Crystal Lake and a former graduate of Prairie Ridge High School. I am board certified in both Family and Sports Medicine with an extensive concussion background. It would be great to care for the community I grew up in! Please don't hesitate to call me with any questions.
