Every other year, the high school participates in Career Day, an exciting day where many different people from the community share their career experience.
In the school years that we do not hold Career Day, juniors and seniors participate in Shadow Day. This opportunity gives students first-hand experience in a career in which they are interested. Juniors and seniors have been placed with a wide variety of professionals, including a mortician, a doctor, accountants, engineers, physical therapists, nurses, mechanics, farmers, and much more!
Juniors are required to take the PSAT as preparation for SAT. PSAT results are used to qualify students for the National Merit Scholarship Program. The counselor meets with the students individually to review their PSAT results. Sophomores may also take the PSAT.
