Senior Privileges, Senior Expectations: Senior Seating
Written by Vanessa Wilson
With the Class of 2017 in their last year of high school, there are a lot of emotions and uncertainties about what this year — and the four years thereafter will bring.
High school seniors are on the brink of making some of the biggest decisions of their lives, and for many students and their parents; it will feel as if this moment came sooner than they anticipated. Senior year of high school lends a lot of “lasts,” but for the first time students will be navigating the college admissions process while trying to make the most of what’s left of high school.
September 9, 2016, the “Senior Seating” standing legacy of Pine Forge Academy ushered in forty-eight aspiring scholars equipping them with the tools to be servant leaders for God and mankind. Allegheny East Conference Corporation Ministerial Director, Stephen Richardson charged the vibrant group to (1) love God, (2) walk with God, and (3) to sit in His presence.
Seniors should also be reminded that their grades still matter; (1) Senioritis will hit — but fight through, (2) you’ll be busy, but stay organized; stay focused on academics but also embrace opportunities to make the most of your final year, (3) college applications will be due sooner than you can imagine, (4) the journey will be exciting and emotional.
Senior year requires students to do a lot of growing up in a short amount of time, but with support from parents, friends and teachers, the academic voyage will prepare you to tackle the next chapter of your life.
