Seniors: College Application Process
Mr. Kabakjian visited the Senior English classes to review the application process and how to use SCOIR. He encourages seniors to see him directly for additional support. A few reminders: 1) Make sure you add the colleges you are applying to on SCOIR. 2) Invite your teachers through SCOIR to write letters of recommendation. 3) Your transcript will be sent through SCOIR to the colleges you apply to. AFTER YOU APPLY TO A COLLEGE, GO INTO SCOIR AND MOVE THAT COLLEGE TO "APPLIED". This will let us know to send out your letters of recommendation and transcript.
Juniors: Plan Your Education
While all four years in high school are important, the most pivotal year for academic and career decisions is a student's junior year. During their junior year, students take a more comprehensive look at their future beyond high school. Mrs. Leaman visited Juniors in their English classes to review college and career information and familiarize them with SCOIR, a college planning system to assist in exploring careers and applying to colleges. Students and their parents are also invited to make an appointment to talk with Mrs. Leaman about college and career options.
Juniors and Sophomores: The PSAT is scheduled for Wednesday, October 13. All juniors on campus will report to the cafeteria at 7:45 a.m. to take this exam This is the first step in entering the scholarship programs conducted by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Sophomores who have registered and paid for the PSAT will take the exam at the same time. Sophomores do not qualify for scholarships, but it is good practice for their junior year. All students taking this exam will need two #2 pencils and an approved calculator.
