Information for Current Juniors (Class of 2021):
Please read through our Timberline Post-High School Handbook. This handbook provides great information about all post-high school options including Military careers, Apprenticeships, Technical Colleges, Community Colleges, and Universities. In regard to college admissions deadlines, keep in mind the dates are for this school year’s seniors so you can assume most of the deadlines will be very close to these dates for the school year 2020-2021 but are not official until colleges release their updates.
For updated SAT dates and information, check out our Testing and Assessment page too.
Students and parents should contact a counselor if they have questions about transitions between schools, registration, course selection, interpretation and use of test results, or graduation requirements. High School counselors assist students with academic, vocational, college, and personal questions. Parents may contact a counselor to facilitate teacher meetings, discuss their students' current scheduling, or post high school planning. Students and parents are strongly encouraged to make an appointment with a counselor or our career technician.
