Seniors are reminded to let your counselor or Ms. Costanzo know where you have been accepted. If your schools are requesting mid year reports, we will be sending these automatically to any school that you have not been accepted to you. Therefore, it is imperative that you keep our office up to date. Thank you.

PSAT results are available online for 10th and 11th graders and students have received their paper copy IF you are a 10th or 11th grader who has forgotten their username: go to your college board account and click on "forgot user name"; same thing if you forgot your password. Please make note of these important items for future reference. 

FINANCIAL AID NIGHT: for parents of seniors was held in October. You may access the info below if you missed the presentation.

  • Learn effective communication methods in dealing with faculty, peers, family, etc.
  • Effectively access, evaluate and use information relating to their post-secondary plans.
