Students and parents, the county does have a dress code which must be followed when the cap and gown are worn: Gentlemen must wear dark dress slacks (no jeans), dark socks with dress shoes, solid light-colored shirt (preferably white) with a tie.  Ladies must wear a light-colored dress (preferably white) heeled shoes or dress sandals.  Girls, your cap and gown color is white which is easy to see through, so it is very important you strictly meet the dress code.  You must abide by this dress code or you will not be allowed to participate in the event--parents and students please remember this important county guideline!

Senior FAQ
 
 
Senior Year FAQs- Frequently Asked Questions!
(It’s really not that hard, everything falls into place, I promise!)
 
 
When do I start applying to  4 yr. colleges/universities?
The sooner the better! Some DEADLINES are as early as Oct. 17th this year! The earlier applications are received to ALL colleges, the better chance of getting accepted. PERIOD. You should apply to at least 3 different schools, with at least one being a school you KNOW you can get accepted to!

What do I need to get accepted to a community college?
A High School Diploma.You may apply to community colleges as late as May or June.
 
 How can I get financial aid for college?
Most financial aid, grants, and scholarships from colleges comes from the FAFSA application which is done in January or February of your senior year. It will be based off of your parents’ 2014 income taxes. Encourage your parents to complete their taxes as soon as possible this year!

 
 
When do I apply for Bright Futures?
After Dec. 1st- Miss Harris will be giving a seminar for parents and students how to do this. It is a 5 minute registration. A FAFSA application must also be completed now to be eligible for Bright Futures. (Parent income does not matter, but a FAFSA application MUST be completed). 

 
 
Can I get Bright Futures even if I have a Florida Pre-Paid Scholarship?
Yes! You can! Bright Futures is a merit scholarship, meaning if the student earns it, the student gets it. The students are not in competition with anyone but themselves. If they meet the criteria, they get the scholarship. Bright Futures money will be refunded to the student from the college after tuition and other expenses are paid from the student account. “Other expenses” could include dormitory fees, meal plans, books, etc. FYI—Bright Futures does NOT pay for Summer terms!

 
 
When will I find out if I qualified for Bright Futures?
The Department of Education sends out letters twice a year. Once in March for “early qualifiers” (if the student has already met all requirements including GPA ,test scores, and community service hours) and then again in early August.  You can check your Bright Futures standing on facts.org or with Miss Harris at any time.  (Students have no responsibility to send transcripts to Bright Futures, District Headquarters does this)

 
 
When can I apply for local community scholarships?
Most community scholarships become available in February or March of your senior year. All community scholarships will be posted online on the school website. These scholarships are usually awarded on Class Night, the awards night the day before Graduation.

 
How can I get an athletic scholarship?
Athletes should discuss their interest in collegiate sports with their coach and Miss Harris in their junior year if possible. Seniors need to register with the NCAA Clearinghouse online recruiting form.* Keep in mind that grades and SAT/ACT scores are very important, not just athletic ability! Also, it may be easier to get recruited for an out-of-state college sports team, depending on the sport.

Obligations
Senior textbooks are due to the teacher the day of the final.
Make sure all school obligations are cleared!
 
 
 
Seniors should pay close attention to the 
daily announcements 
for any changes or additions!
