All college Entrance Exams (SAT, ACT) require a high school code. Paraclete’s Code Number is 051-356. You will need it often so you may wish to memorize it!!!
17 AND 18 year-old males:
You must register with the Selective Service within 30 days of turning 18, or as early as 17 years, 3 months. It’s Federal Law! Go to www.sss.gov to register online.
You get 2 College Visit days away from school. Get the form from the Resources at the bottom of this page and have your teachers and counselor sign it at least a week in advance. When completed, turn the form into the attendance office (Mrs. Thompson)
When college reps are announced, you must sign up with the Counselors before the day the Representative arrives.
You will be receiving one “unofficial” transcript during the 1st quarter. After your first “unofficial” transcript has been given, you will be charged $1 for any additional “unofficial” transcripts.
“Official” transcripts (sealed) must be requested from Mrs. Parchman. Do not send transcripts until they are requested. The first 3 are free. Additional copies are $5.
If you are a Division I or II candidate, make sure you are taking the right courses and are certifies by the NCAA Clearinghouse. Get started by registering at www.eligibilitycenter.org. Request that we send transcripts, and make sure that you send your SAT or ACT scores to them. (Code 9999) We will have a meeting soon to go over these requirements again–or see Mr. Landa right away.
