2022-2023 Senior Graduation Requirement Letter


The following graduation requirements will need to be completed to graduate in May:

● All students must complete 21 credits by the graduation date. If the credits are not completed by graduation, they cannot participate in the ceremony. Please reference the curriculum guide online for specific requirements from all departments. If your son or daughter is credit deficient, please contact your student’s counselor to discuss options and create a plan.

● All students must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at If you choose not to fill out the FAFSA, students are required to complete the waiver found at this link,, and send it to Barb Kowalski in Student Services at The FAFSA or the waiver need to be submitted before March 1st. The earlier the FAFSA is submitted, the more opportunities students have of receiving grant money or scholarships that they will not have to pay back. Students/parents can use their 2021 Tax Returns to file this form now to increase their opportunity for financial aid. However, if parents/guardians choose to complete the waiver/non-participation form, this will not prohibit your child from completing the FAFSA in the future.

● Seniors must also complete the College Readiness Questionnaire. This questionnaire is located in Naviance and will need to be completed before March 1st. If your student is graduating early, then they will need to complete this questionnaire by December 1st.

Seniors must fill out this survey in order to have their final transcript sent to their college/university, trade school, military, or employer.
