Attention Seniors, Juniors, and Parents: Wondering about Financial Aid? Want to know about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)? Want to know how to start the paying for college process?

Our TSAC representative, Erika Adams, has recorded a "Paying for College" presentation. Here is the link to the "Paying for College" webinar record: Play recording

Students and Parents can then sign up for a Virtual Q and A session with Erika Adams. Registration is required and it is ONLY a Q and A session, not a presentation. You will need to view the "Paying for College" Presentation PRIOR to the Q & A session. Here is the link to your Q&A session:

On Tuesday, September 22, seniors will take an official ACT test during regular school hours. Since the exam format is paper/pencil, both remote and on-site learners will need to report to THS by 7:30 am. Students will test in small groups and only with peers on the same path. For more information on the senior ACT, please click here.

Due to the strict requirements per ACT and to ensure appropriate safety precautions are followed (including social distancing, group size, etc.) we will only have seniors (approximately 275) in attendance on Tuesday, Sept. 22nd. 

Due to Tuesday being "Seniors Only," A-L students (including seniors) will attend school on Monday (9/21) AND Wednesday (9/23), instead of Monday AND Tuesday.  M-L Students (including seniors) will still attend school on Thursday AND Friday.  


Senior ads will be accepted through Sept 28. Ads may be turned into Mrs Vickers in 3431 or emailed you vickersa@btcs.org

Ads purchased online at Jostens.com are due Oct. 11.


 Underclassmen, faculty, staff, and administrative photos will be taken Sept 29 (A-L) and Oct 2 (M-Z).

Distance learners will be able to drop in on their assigned days. More details to follow.

Attention NHS Seniors - We are accepting nominations for NHS officers from today until Thursday, September 17th.  NHS Officers must be senior members in good standing.  They will hold responsibilities for speaking at the NHS / Beta induction ceremony in November, as well as planning future community service activities and communicating those to the group.
