Counselors will still process requests to drop classes through the end of the first quarter, which ends this Friday, Oct 7.
 
Individual Student Appointments
Now that the first grading period is over, counselors are trying to check in with students with multiple D’s and F’s. They have also been meeting individually with Seniors to discuss post-high school plans. For those applying to 4-year colleges, we will be walking through the process of requesting required documents for their applications. Individual Frosh appointments will happen after Seniors, likely starting in this month.

Sign up for AP Exams until Sunday, Nov 6. Late registration options are available, but will incur a late registration fee. Please see here for more details.
 
Weekend SAT Exams Canceled
Acalanes has canceled all weekend SAT exams and will only be holding school day SAT exams. We will be hosting a Senior only school day SAT this month and a Junior only school day SAT in the Spring. Information regarding test dates and registration will go out in the Daily Don so please keep an eye out for it. The College Board should notify and refund any students signed up for weekend SAT exams that were originally scheduled at Acalanes. Thank you for your understanding in regard to this change.
