  • 11th Grade Classroom Guidance Unit - Counselors met with all juniors in the first week of December to re-introduce them to Naviance/Family Connection; a program used for college searches and the online college application process.
  • 12th Grade Classroom Guidance Unit & Senior College Night - Counselors meet with all seniors at the beginning of the school year to review their post-secondary plans. The counseling staff also hosts Senior College Night in Mid-September. College Admissions Reps share insight from the college's point of view as well as tips on writing a quality essay. Counselors review the senior calendar and the college application process. We end the night with a handful of Alumini advice videos and a parent panel.

Testing

  • HSA   

  • AP Testing  

    The AP Program is collaboration between motivated students, dedicated teachers, and committed high schools, colleges, and universities. Since 1955, the AP Program has enabled millions of students to take college-level courses and exams, and to earn college credit or placement while still in high school. Each AP Exam has a corresponding AP course and provides a standardized measure of what students have learned in the AP classroom. AP Exams are rigorous, multiple-component tests in 37 subjects that are administered at high schools each May.

    Each AP Exam contains a free-response section (either essay or problem-solving) and a section of multiple-choice questions. The modern language exams also have a speaking component, and the AP Music Theory Exam includes a sight-singing task. Each AP Exam is given an overall grade of 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5, with 5 indicating a student who is extremely well qualified to receive college credit and/or advanced placement based on an AP Exam grade. To reduce the time students spend completing their answer sheets on exam day, all students are required to participate in a Pre-Administration which is held in mid-April.  

    AP Bulletin of AP Students and Parents - Your 2013- 2014 Guide to the AP Program contains information about AP Exams as well as test security and test administration policies and procedures designed to provide all students with a fair and uniform testing experience. On exam day, students will be asked to indicate that they understand and agree to the policies and proceduresthat appear in the guide.   

 AP Exam Registration was held in March. The Exam Ordering Deadline was Thursday, March 27th. The fee for each exam is $89 dollars. Students that requested fee waivers by the November deadline were required to pay $10 per exam.
