SENIORS

Many of you are already starting to finalize your decisions for next year…YAY!!!!

Please remember to update your SCOIR page. Move your schools to “APPLIED” or “NO LONGER APPLYING” and update those outcomes – let us know “ACCEPTED”, “DEFERRED/WAITLIST” or “DENIED”

And, if you’ve made your decision – Mark As ENROLLING

Also – Please remember to fill out the Scholarship Survey. I am required to submit a report to the district outlining all the amazing scholarships and merit awards our seniors have won. This survey is very important in this process. Information from the Scholarship Survey will NOT be shared out to the school or other students.  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScZVe9Pi72TxmRd-928Lapn5KlbgvxmI57SFDBXxn9N_j8tmw/viewform?usp=sf_link

College Spotlight: Johns Hopkins University

Are you interested in Johns Hopkins University?

Do you want to know what they look for in a student’s application?

Hopkins seeks out students who have different interests and perspectives because they believe diversity of thought encourages original research ideas and meaningful collaboration within the community. 

They say, “That’s why we review the full context of a student’s application—from their academic potential to how they engage in and outside the classroom and the causes that matter to them.” Check out this video for more information: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdkzr1fBpBU
