Upcoming

CPCC- There will be a CPCC meeting in our MPR in February for Seniors who will be attending the college in the fall.


Juniors - You will be taking the ACT in February.


Please use act.org for free test review. Remember that you do not have to register for this test however, please keep your test score report which contains your ACT ID number. This will allow you to create an account after the test. You will need this account, during the college application process, to send your official test scores.


Registration- Students will be registering for next year's courses starting March 20th and will close on April 9th. We encourage students to discuss course load with individual teachers as well as consider all aspects of their daily school/community activities when making their course selection.


The counseling department will not have individual meetings for course registration, however, please feel free to email any questions/concerns that you may have.

Big picture

What should Seniors be working on NOW?


  • HIghly encourage students to apply for scholarships (it is found under their Class of group, resources, hs counseling, and then scholarships)


  • Making your college decision- For some of you there are many things that you need to consider, please take advantage of all opportunities to make the best choice for you (ex. college days on your respective campus)


  • Continue to work diligently in your classes and don't give in to SENIORITIS! Even though you have your college acceptance, you still need to maintain or improve your grades for possible scholarship opportunities. You do not want your college to revoke your acceptance due to grades.

Answers to your Parent/Student Questions

Do parents need a separate Naviance account from Students? No, you do not need a separate account. You can log in with your students info and they can provide it for you.
