Forms and information

From the counselor

ATTENTION JUNIORS AND JUNIOR PARENTS: If you have not taken the ACT yet, you need to register to take it as soon as possible. You will probably need to take it more than once but now is a good time to get started so you can work on improving your scores.

Students who plan to apply for scholarships or financial aid

***Four-year college bound students MUST take the writing portion of the ACT at least ONCE.

IMPORTANT-The December and April test dates offer the Test Information for $20. If you order the Test Information, you will receive a copy of the test, your answers, and the correct answers. This is a wonderful study tool and a great way to improve your test scores.

Upcoming ACT test dates:

ACT has instituted a new identification requirement. You must upload a photo with a solid background to be printed on the admission ticket. You can register without doing this, but you must go back online before the test date and take care of it. Admission tickets are required for entrance to the test. Also, if your student is taking the test and does not have an acceptable form of photo ID, email a photo to me and I will print them an ID letter.

To register for the ACT, go to School code 011-318.

Seniors need to complete the Planning Form and return to me so we can begin meeting one-on-one and making plans for college admissions and scholarship. These forms will be distributed to seniors by August 30, or you can click here for one. (This document was typed and saved in an older version of Word, so you will need to save it as a Word file to be able to open it properly.)

For more information for seniors, click here. For information about letters of recommendation click here.


Each senior must have a record on file of having performed 75 hours of community service. Most students have more hours than they even realize, so sit down with your senior and start writing everything down. Documentation forms are available in the office and outside my office door. Possible community service includes any volunteer work done through church organizations (VBS, Sunday School, church maintenance, etc.) and work done through civic organizations, service organizations (Beta Club), etc. Also, any work done to help around the school during the summer or before or after school can be counted. Some of our students helped with clean up day at school and at the football field. This counts!! ***ALL COMMUNITY SERVICE DOCUMENTATION FORMS MUST BE TURNED IN BY THE END OF APRIL OF THEIR SENIOR YEAR.

A well-rounded student of good character is one who gives back to his/her community. Try to get your child to view this as an opportunity to be of service to others, not just as a graduation requirement that must be fulfilled.

***Community service hours start counting the summer before the 9th grade year. It is fine to back date forms if there was an activity done previously that has not been documented.
