At this point, we will be allowed to have dancing, however, students will need to wear masks on the dance floor. 

Graduation
May 27, 7:30 p.m.
We are currently looking at holding our commencement ceremony at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse pending final approval from the venue, which will be determined based on what the COVID-related directives and restrictions are from the State and City in May. 
The commencement ceremony will be our traditional ceremony, with minor adjustments. Students will still process onto the arena floor, and receive their diplomas while crossing the stage.  
If the ceremony were to be held under the current circumstances, each student will have access to 4 tickets. There is no cost for tickets. In our conversations with the event staff at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, we are optimistic the number of tickets available per student will increase from 4. 
We will continue to work with the staff at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse and will have more details for you as we get closer to the date. 
 

Information for Parents of Seniors

Senior year is a very exciting time. There is a lot to do and a lot going on. The North Ridgeville High School guidance counselors want to give you an idea of what will happen and when. 

What Can Students Do Now?

  • Explore career options and colleges who offer your student’s possible majors. We suggest using the ocis.org website (username: nrhs and the password: ohiocis03) or the CollegeBoard BigFuture website (bigfuture.collegeboard.org).
  • Visit colleges! See different types of campuses to see where they will be comfortable.
    Create their Parchment.com account so they are ready to send their transcripts once they start applying to colleges.
  • If they need to re-take any End of Course exams to earn the 18 points needed for graduation, they will take those tests in early January and intervention will start in October. (Parents will be contacted about this soon.)
  • Practice to raise their test scores (graduation tests or ACT/SAT) by using the free online Khan Academy program or other test prep options.
  • Look at the NRHS Guidance Webpage for information about scholarships and other opportunities.
  • Get a job or volunteer. Colleges like to see that students are productive during their time off. Being involved in clubs or sports is also a positive way to spend time.

Timeline for College Process

  • In September, each senior has a “senior interview” scheduled with his or her counselor and is expected to attend. During this meeting, the counselors speak with each senior to ensure that we understand his/her future plans and that the students know their next steps.
  • Look at the NRHS Guidance Webpage for information about scholarships and other opportunities. 
  • College applications should be completed by the end of October. Seniors are responsible to check application due dates. Colleges will need official ACT/SAT scores sent by the student directly from the testing agency. Students must also request their official transcript be sent.
  • In the fall, students will be introduced to a new software program, Naviance, that will help with college, career planning, and transcript requests.  
  • Students and parents are encouraged to attend our Financial Aid Night held on the 1st evening parent/teacher conference night here at the high school. The FAFSA can be completed online as early as October.
  • Students will receive acceptance information and financial aid offers by the spring. (Admission information will be earlier depending on when you apply).
