Important Message from our Guidance Counselor, Ms. Christina Stenholm:
High School Students: Please email me (email@example.com) or request a Zoom conference. I would like to touch base with students face-to-face.
Seniors need to check their student account at the colleges they have applied to/been accepted to for the most current information about deadlines for deposits and dorms. Orientations may be conducted online Information is evolving as facts are updated.
Juniors may need to sign up for the June 6 SAT or the June 13 ACT. This is the next date available for testing and, at this time, there is not another date until August for the SAT. The demand for this date will be high.
Any sophomores who want to take a college entrance exam for dual enrollment qualification should also sign up for the June test dates.
There is a possibility we could do a school day SAT on April 28.
Please stay in contact if you have any questions.
