A representative from the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) will be present to answer questions about the FAFSA and assist families with all required documents through the process. This is a drop-in-event, so please feel free to stop by at any point during the times listed. Families participating will need to bring a laptop computer and all items from the FAFSA Checklist printout. Parents and the student should also create an FSA ID no less than 72 hours prior to coming.

AP exam registration is now OPEN! The ordering deadline is 11/1/2021. Regularly scheduled exams will take place between Monday, May 2 and Friday, May 13. 

There is a 2 step process to ensure you have an exam ordered for you without incurring a $40 late fee.  

1. Complete the paper copy of the 2021-2022 AP TESTING REGISTRATION form OR complete your registration using MySchoolBucks. Printed copies are available in the counseling office and in your AP classrooms. Please be sure to read it over carefully and select the exams you plan to take. If you would like to take an exam not normally offered (i.e. AP English Language and Composition) indicate that on the "Other" line. If you are choosing to pay through MySchoolBucks by using a credit card, a registration form does not need to be turned in at the counseling office. Instead, registration can be completed online through your MySchoolBucks account.  
  1. Click on the following link to access MySchoolBucks
  2. Click the blue button that says "Buy Now". This will direct you to log in to your MySchoolBucks account. After logging in you should be at the AP Exam Registration page. *If you don't have a MySchoolBucks account, you will need to create one and then will need to add your student(s) by clicking +Add a Student and put in your child’s/children’s information in order to pay for the registration fees. 
  3. Select the student that you are paying for from the drop down menu and select the checkbox next to the exam that they are taking. Click "Add To Basket" if you need to pay for more than one test and continue adding tests until you have what you need. 
  4. Once you have added all of your test registrations to your basket, click "Buy Now" to pay for the test registration(s). 
2. Log into your My AP account at myap.collegeboard.org and indicate YES or NO when asked about ordering an exam for each class you are enrolled in at SHS. If a course you are enrolled in is not listed in your account, please see your teacher IMMEDIATELY for a join code. If you plan to take an exam for a course you are not enrolled in, you need to speak to Mrs. Kate Miklos ASAP in the counseling office. You will need a special code to order an exam.

The registration fee of $40.00 per exam is due by 11/01/2021. The remaining $56.00 per exam is due by Monday, April 25, 2022. You will be invoiced for the balance at a later date.

If you have any questions about using MySchoolBucks please contact Ms. Marie Hart at marie.hart@sycsd.org. If you have any questions about the AP exams please email Mrs. Kate Miklos at kate.miklos@sycsd.org

As always, SHS is proud to partner with many colleges to offer visits from admissions representatives to provide our students valuable information about different schools. We are resuming in-person visits this school year, but will also be conducting virtual visits as well.

Students can sign up on Naviance for these visits. For a list of colleges that are scheduled to visit and when please click here.
Upcoming Instant Decision Days

York County Alliance for Learning (YCAL) has opened registration for seven of their fall career exploration programs. These programs are held at various sites in the county and allow students an opportunity to learn more about a specific career field, interact with professionals in that field, find out about the education needed for success in that career, see various positions and positions and pathways within that field, and ask questions to help clarify their interest in that career. These programs can also be used to meet a field experience requirement for the graduation project.  

The in-person programs that have been released today are in Healthcare, Law, Accounting, the Music Industry, Education, Respiratory Care, and Information Technology. There are also a large number of virtual programs that are in the YCAL library from last year's career exploration programs. These can be watched by both students and parents when convenient.
