Seniors: College Application Process:
Mrs. Leaman visited your Kingdom Living Class and went over the process, and now she encourages you to come and see her directly for additional support. Last year as a junior, college options were explored. This year, you should be organizing your priority list. The Guidance Office is open and looking forward to helping you in the college application process. It is important that you are registered with SCOIR to help manage this process. Your transcript will be sent to colleges and you will request letters of recommendation from your teachers through SCOIR.
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. Mr. Kabakjian will be visiting Juniors in their English classes to help students register with SCOIR, a college planning system that will assist you in exploring careers and applying to colleges. Students and their parents are also invited to make an appointment to talk with Mr. Kabakjian about college and career options.
Juniors and Sophomores: The PSAT is scheduled for Wednesday, October 14. All juniors on campus will report to the cafeteria at 7:45 a.m. to take this exam. Junior remote learners are also welcome! If you live locally and want to take the exam, please contact the Guidance Office to register and receive your PSAT Student Guide. All students taking this exam will need two #2 pencils and an approved calculator.
The PSAT is the first step in entering the scholarship programs conducted by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

Quarter One ends on Friday, October 23, and report cards will be issued to students on Thursday, November 5th at the end of the school day. A students' report card may be held for a variety of reasons such as overdue books, failure to return a sport uniform, etc. The teacher who holds the report card will issue it when the student has handled their responsibilities to them. If you have questions or concerns, don't hesitate to call the Guidance Office.
