Senior Advisement

Seniors

  • Using Naviance

Most of what you will do to apply for college, will be done through Naviance. It is very important that before you start applying for colleges, you set up your Naviance account and match your Common App account to your Naviance Account. Click here for our Naviance page.

All seniors are required to complete a senior information sheet and submit it to your counselor by September 9, 2021. Your teachers and counselors will use this information to write a letter of recommendation on your behalf. Please include all activities you have been involved in from 9th - 12th grade. This can include outside activities in the community and any service projects. The more information that you provide, the better your letter will be! This is your chance to brag about yourself. 

 

Download the Microsoft Word document and make sure to do a save as and rename it with your name. Add your information and then email it to your counselor.

Seniors may exempt their final exam in any class in which the following criteria are met:

  • 85 or higher (before honors points and without recovery)

  • No suspensions, in-school or out-of-school during the entire spring semester.

  • No more than 5 absences from the individual class

 

Exemption is by period/class. It is possible to meet the requirements and exempt one class, but not others.

This form must be completed, signed by a parent or guardian and turned in to the Attendance Office before the last day of classes.
