A network of social workers, school counselors, and other human service professionals refer families and individuals in need of assistance. Local non-profits, faith-based organizations, service organizations and other government agencies serve Holiday Giving recipients, as donations are available.

Senior Meeting Information

The Senior Packet was handed out to rising seniors at the end of the 2019 school year. Counselors met with rising seniors and parents throughout the summer as well as Back to School Night in September to give an overview of the college application process.  Check out the Power Point from our Senior Night Presentation. Counselors also met with our seniors in small groups during the school day. This Power Point is similar to the Senior Night Presentation but provides a more in depth description and video about matching the Common App and Naviance. Check out the info provided to our seniors during the Senior Unit.

  • AP Testing - The AP Program is collaboration between motivated students, dedicated teachers, and committed high schools, colleges, and universities. Since 1955, the AP Program has enabled millions of students to take college-level courses and exams, and to earn college credit or placement while still in high school. Each AP Exam has a corresponding AP course and provides a standardized measure of what students have learned in the AP classroom. AP Exams are rigorous, multiple-component tests in 37 subjects that are administered at high schools each May.

    Each AP Exam contains a free-response section (either essay or problem-solving) and a section of multiple-choice questions. The modern language exams also have a speaking component, and the AP Music Theory Exam includes a sight-singing task. Each AP Exam is given an overall grade of 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5, with 5 indicating a student who is extremely well qualified to receive college credit and/or advanced placement based on an AP Exam grade.
