Seniors – Transcripts are now available. Mrs. Byrd will provide you with a transcript during orientation which will take place through English classes. Public colleges in Louisiana automatically access your transcript through the State Transcript System. You do not have to request they be sent. If you apply to a college using the Common App, you do not have to request a transcript. You must request a transcript be sent for all other colleges. You must pay the $5 transcript fee on locallevelevents.com and complete the google form to indicate where you want your transcript mailed.
Seniors– If you are interested in attending one of America’s Service Academies (West Point, Naval Academy, Air Force Academy, Coast Guard Academy, or Merchant Marine Academy), you should RSVP for the Virtual Service Academy Day. The Virtual Service Academy Day will be held Saturday, September 25 from 9-12. Information is available in the counseling office or the Class of 2022 Canvas page. CLICK HERE for flyer.
