  • Important Updates!

    Hello families of seniors!

    It is officially spring semester which means graduation is right around the corner! Mrs. Baker and I wanted to update you on some important information, so please read the entire email to make sure that you do not miss anything. 


    • Graduation for all seniors is May 24th, 2023, at 8:00pm at Gas South Arena

    • All students graduating should arrive at the arena at 6:00pm. This is crucial for the day-of to ensure that all students are in the correct order before the procession begins.

    • More information will follow as we get closer to the date regarding parking, etc.

    • Optional Graduation announcements are available for purchase on North Gwinnett's website. Please click HERE to go to the Senior Class Information cite.


    Graduation Practice

    • Graduation practice will be May 22nd, 2023, at 1:00pm at North Gwinnett High School.

    • This is MANDATORY for all graduating seniors. Students should plan to arrive 10 minutes early in order to locate their seat and begin at 1:00pm!

    • Students will receive their 10 graduation tickets at this time.


    Senior Final Exams

    • May 15th-17th (1st-3rd periods will test in the Commons)

    • Because graduation is the last day of school for Gwinnett County schools, the seniors’ finals exams will be moved up a week before. This means that the last full day for seniors will be Friday May 12th.

    • If your student is exempting finals, then they will be finished on May 12th.


    Senior Class Dues

    • If you have not yet paid your student's Senior Class Dues, please go into MyPaymentsPlus to pay that fee

    • Senior Class Dues cover all the graduation ceremony fees, cap and gown, diploma, and senior week events

    • If you need assistance with Senior Class Dues, please contact Kirsten Baker at Kirsten.Baker@gcpsk12.org


    Returning Devices

    • All devices or outstanding balances should be turned in or paid for by the end of the student’s final exams.

    • If your student is exempting final exams, devices should be returned on their last day!  More details on this process will be sent closer to the date.

    When we have plans for Senior Week and Honors Events, we will send you more information on that. However, we wanted to give as much as an update as we could! 

    If you have any questions regarding credits required or graduation requirements, please have your student contact their guidance counselor - link is HERE


    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Baker or myself. The countdown is officially on!

  • College Tests and Entrance Fees

    SAT/ACT:  Both of these college entrance tests have fees attached to them. See their respective websites for details.  Fees are less expensive if paid by the earliest deadlines, so plan ahead to save money.  See http://www.collegeboard.com for information about the SAT and http://www.actstudent.org  for information about the ACT.

    Transcripts:  Transcripts for colleges should be ordered through your MyPaymentsPlus account.  You should also add the college to "Colleges I'm Applying to" list in Naviance. Some scholarship applications also require a copy of your transcript. The fee for each transcript is $5.00, and they must be ordered 48 hours in advance. The final transcript to send to your college in June is free.

    Application Fees:  Colleges charge a fee to process your application and decide whether to accept you or not.  This means you want to limit the number of colleges to which you apply, so do some careful research while you have time over the summer. The fee for each college varies, so see their individual websites for specific information.

    College Deposits/Down payments:  In the spring, colleges will ask you for some kind of deposit or down payment to secure your spot at that school. You only pay this to the college you are actually going to attend.  Failure to pay your deposit means that your spot will be given to somebody on that college’s waitlist.
