Greetings Seniors, Parents and Guardians!

This letter is to help seniors and their families organize upcoming important dates and deadlines. These dates are a crucial part of planning for your next step whether it’s applying to college, finding scholarships, joining the military, or entering the workforce.

Students who are applying to college can create an account on We would suggest starting the application now. Please also have students keep track of their login information for the Common App and College Board accounts. This information is critical in order for counselors to help answer questions during senior meetings, as we do not have access to your account details/passwords.

Students who are planning to enter the military should contact a recruiter for the branch or branches they are interested in. Here is the most up to date list we have for area recruiters by branch

Below, is a list of key dates for seniors and families to be aware of. In addition, here is a link to the Class of 2023 Google Calendar where we will post important dates and deadlines, as well as when college admissions counselors and military recruiters will be at school to meet with students.
