Upcoming Deadlines:

    

Once you have submitted your Transcript Request form to Mrs. Hooks (vanessa_hooks@hcpss.org), please be sure to double-check that your schools have been successfully and correctly entered into your Naviance account under Schools I’m Applying To. Please allow at least 72 hours before checking your student account for accuracy. 

SAT/ACT Test-Optional Schools

University of Maryland, College Park has shared with us that once a student submits their application, College Park will email a survey to the applicant asking whether they wish to submit SAT/ACT scores. Completion of this survey will trigger the completion of the application process for the student. If the student does not complete this survey, their application will remain incomplete. 

*This is an important note. During this time of COVID-19 and remote learning, other colleges may have similar/individual requirements. It will be extremely important for students to closely monitor their emails for any/all correspondences from colleges to ensure a smooth, complete application process.

Help Make your 2020-2021 Yearbook AMAZING

Your 2020-2021 story is as unique as this school year. We don’t know how this year is going to turn out, but: we do know this yearbook is going to be different; we do know that it’s going to be about YOU and YOUR FRIENDS; we do know that we are going to come together as a community; we do know we are going to celebrate our victories and successes. We know that we will create an awesome yearbook for our whole school community to enjoy now and for years to come. We need YOUR help to do that. 

The yearbook team can’t be everywhere, so we need you to help us get as many photos as possible, so EVERYONE can be included in making the 2020-2021 yearbook a true community effort. Please see the attached flyer for how to upload your photos to the Jostens site to be included in this year's yearbook. If you have any questions, please email Hillary Frank, yearbook advisor, at hillary_frank@hcpss.org. Thank you for helping us to make this year's yearbook a success!
