College Tours

It's that time of year again when students have the opportunity to tour different universities around the state. This year will be slightly different than previous years because the day we have college tours is actually a day of school for all students, instead of sophomores staying at school to take the pre-ACT.

It’s finally time for the class of 2019 to shine. All of us have been daydreaming about senior year since elementary school graduation and secretly wishing to be the class of 2020 because it sounds cooler.

A lot of people come out of their senior year telling the junior class to not be afraid to try new things because it’ll be over before you know it.
