Senior Surveys: Senior Surveys will be conducted April 19 - 30. Students will be asked what their plans are for next year and to confirm which institutions they applied to and what the admissions’ decisions were. We will also ask them to provide information on scholarships granted. If your child has received any scholarship awards, we will need the name of the awarding organization (college, private organization) and the amount awarded. Please encourage your child to be accurate when completing this survey. We are required to collect this information by the FCPS School Board. It is used to complete our statistical summaries and to help determine which students will be recognized at our Senior Awards Ceremony.
