Career and College Planning

Coming Soon

Spring is always a busy time for High Schools. There is graduation, prom, testing, award ceremonies, and final sporting events and concerts to attend. And while it is all celebrations and wonderful, it can be a bit overwhelming to keep it all straight - even more so if you have more than 1 student at the high school.  Check out the calendar below to keep up to date with many Career and College Events at SLPHS this spring! 

Exploring Course Options at SLPHS

Throughout the month of February, SLPHS hosted a series of Lunch and Learn videos to showcase a wide-variety of course options available at the high school.  These videos are designed to help students and families take a deep dive into courses and get a better understanding of what a course entails as we enter registration season for the 2021-2022 school year. 

These Lunch and Learn videos are now available on YouTube. Check them out and explore what SLPHS has to offer!

High School registration will close April 16th 2021.
