Various teams of University of North Texas student mentors visit high school campuses in order to help with college applications, financial aid assistance, scholarship assistance and academic help.  

We are fortunate to have a G-Force team on our campus every Thursday from 10:00am to 1:00pm in the Counseling Center.  If you would like to set up a time to meet with G-Force, please click here or go to the counseling website and find the sign up on the main page.
Senior Updates:
  • Your next rank will be at the end of the 1st semester. It will come out sometime the first week of February.
  • We will then rank again after the end of the 5th six week.  
  • Normally you have a few days for grade changes but the schedule is so tight that we will rank as soon as report cards have been sent. Rank will not be given out until after Honor's Breakfast except for VAL and SAL.
  • This rank will decide top ten percent, VAL and SAL.
  • You could have a different rank at the end of the year.
The first 
week of January you will  receive  a letter in the mail about ordering your cords.  They will be due the first week of February.  Please do not disregard any mail that comes from Byron.  There is important information in those envelopes!
