Senior "To Do" List

WELCOME, Class of 2017!

This is a busy and exciting school year for you as you finish your final year of high school and plan for life beyond the home school realm.  The BCA home school staff are here to assist you as you apply to colleges and as you participate in the many wonderful events BCA offers to honor the graduating class.  In order for you to stay at peace in the busyness, please make sure you adhere to the following items:


***Plan and submit transcript requests in a timely fashion as you apply to colleges.  The form is available on this website.  Allow 1 week for a transcript request and 2 weeks, if a recommendation letter is needed.

**Work diligently to provide Mrs. Luhn with the photos and Parent Letter that are explained in the packet mailed to you this summer.  These items will be utilized at the Jr./Sr. Banquet, Baccalaureate, and Commencement, and on your special page in the yearbook.

**Contact your portfolio reviewer to insure that you are meeting all diploma requirements for the specific diploma you have worked to acquire.

**Update your resume, keep your community service record current, and look to participate in activities that offer you a variety of experiences which prepare you to meet your goals beyond high school.
