Credit by Demonstrated Mastery: Students can earn credit for a course without spending a set number of hours taking it in a classroom under the state’s Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) option. Students may “test out” or bypass a course if they have mastered the content. The program provides another opportunity for students to challenge themselves with the next level of rigor in a subject. Please see these documents to understand the process: CDM FAQ's, CDM Available courses, CDM Process Chart and CDM Family and Student Application and Agreement. If you are interested, please contact Mrs. Miller at email@example.com.
Project Uplift: The application is now open, and the deadline is Jan. 15, 2019, for this UNC-Chapel Hill program for juniors of outstanding academic ability from backgrounds underrepresented in post-high school education (including Native American, African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Asian American, first-generation and rural populations). Students do not need to be nominated. They will need to request an electronic copy of their transcripts via ScribOrder and list in the instructions that they need an electronic copy. Ms. Fields will email an encrypted unofficial copy that they can upload. If you have questions, please contact Ms. Greene.

Important information for seniors: In orientation, you should have received a sheet with frequently asked transcript and recommendation questions and a set of deadlines. The sheet is also linked above. Please read it first before contacting your counselors; the sheet answers most of the questions you will have. In addition, we have run rank and it is now available to use. Contact your counselor if you need yours.
New location for college visits: College admissions representatives will now come to the West Gym Lobby during the lunch periods to meet with prospective students. Check our Google Calendar below for dates, which will be updated throughout the year. (They're also available on the bulletin board in Student Services.) Please pay attention to the times of the visits; most colleges don't stay for both lunches. Information is sent to the 'LoeDown and scroll, and also will go out via Remind (to students who are signed up for it!). These visits are for students only.

Why speak with a counselor? We’re here for you. Whatever concern students have — from academic to personal to career — you can come to your counselor and find a place where you can share your concern and get help in addressing it. Students can make an appointment request for any time of the school day. Your counselor will try to meet the request. We do try to make sure we talk with you during times when it least affects your class schedule.
When you come from class to see a counselor, be sure to let your teacher know about your appointment and have the teacher fill out a hall pass so you won’t be marked absent. We are also willing to schedule meetings before or after school. You can reach us through these links:
A-De: Ms. Greene
Di-Jh: Mr. Small
Ji-Muk: Ms. Dechant
Mul-Shem: Ms. Saviello
Shen-Z: Ms. Kearney
Please know that if you feel you’re in an emergency and need to speak with someone, you’re always welcome to come to Student Services. Depending on who is available, you may speak with your counselor or another counselor. Feel free to contact us throughout the school year. Student Services is not just our name — it’s our mission!
