So, keep working hard! Your senior year can be a juggling act. There are decisions to be made about college and your future, applications to complete, and tests to take as you prepare to leave high school. It is the goal of the Counseling Department to help you through this process. You should have completed a Senior Contract during scheduling last spring. This will ensure that you know what courses you need in order to graduate and that you are enrolled in those courses this year. Feel free to make an appointment with your counselor anytime if you have a question regarding your senior contract or need assistance with college/career planning.
