Class of 2023

Welcome to the Class of 2023 website! We will us this site to share resources and keep you up-to-date with information from now until graduation.

Pre-Registration (Course Selection)

Counselors met with students via English classes to discuss pre-registration. Students should look through the resources posted in their English Google Classroom and click on the link for the Google Form. This Google Form is what you will use to select your courses for next school year. Below is a copy of the presentation.

Upcoming Events

College Board Big Future Days

BigFuture Days can help students get strong start on building their college list. Whether they’ve already started their college search or have no idea where to begin, students can attend the BigFuture Days to connect with colleges that might be a good fit. BigFuture Days gives students a chance to get information about multiple colleges from college admissions officers and current college students.

Here are five reasons to attend BigFuture Days:

1. Explore colleges in a way that’s informative but not overwhelming.

2. Connect directly with colleges to get answers to questions and show interest in attending.

3. Hear from current college students who know what it’s like on campus.

4. Take key college planning steps like searching for colleges and exploring scholarships.

5. Join these free events from a computer or mobile device.

REsearching Colleges

The College Board's BigFuture website is a great way to start your college search. I created this PowerPoint to help you understand how to use the site.

College Research Worksheet

Below is a link for a generic College Research Worksheet. I encourage you to make a copy of it and change it to make it your own. For instance, you can add a section or delete a question to list what is important to you. It is often hard to remember what each college offers when you are researching and it helps to write it down as you go.

ACT/SAT

We recommend that students plan to take their ACT or SAT in the spring of their junior year. All schools across the nation accept either the ACT or SAT so it is your choice which one you want to take. You will need to sign up on your own. If you are on Free or Reduced Price Lunch you can get a fee waiver from the Counseling Office.
