Rather than waiting until the end of high school to award aid, which is often too late to impact a student’s college ambitions or choices, enables students to earn grant aid throughout high school, starting as early as 9th grade, for doing all the things that best prepare them to succeed, whether that’s getting good grades, volunteering in the community or joining an extracurricular.


The amount that students earn from a college on represents a guaranteed minimum amount of aid they’ll receive if they apply and are admitted to that college.

2019-2020 Registration Information for Current Students

Current 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students will be meeting with counselors to submit their course requests for the 2019-2020 school year.  Students will be informed of their registration date and time by their English teacher.  A registration make up day will be held in early April for any student who misses their initial day and time.    


Course cards will be reviewed with students at the time of registration.  Students are not required to have the card filled out prior but may review them ahead of time if they are interested.  Please also take the time to review the graduation requirements as you consider your courses.


As a reminder, once requests are entered into Focus, students will be able to view their requests by changing the school year to 2019-20.  All courses are subject to availability, with graduation requirement course needs taking first priority.  Schedule change requests must be submitted no later than May 31, 2019.
