Information for Seniors


financial aid

October marks the annual opening of the FAFSA form (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), as well as the College Board's CSS Profile, used by many of the nation's more selective public or private colleges to determine tuition aid. Seniors' families are encouraged to apply early to be first in line for grants, loans and work study programs to help offset the cost of a college education. This is also a time when we are reminded of the year-round work of our high school guidance counselors and College and Career Center staff who support students throughout their high school careers, not just during their senior year. These future-inspiring staff give students the confidence to dream big as they contemplate life after high school. We look forward to reporting to you in eight months what is next for the SUSD Class of 2022!

Senior Photos and Yearbook Ads

  • Seniors must have their pictures taken at Grads Photography for the yearbook by January 13th. Visit  and select "Book Now" to schedule an appointment. There is no charge for a simple yearbook photo, but Grads does offer other photo sessions that are not free of charge.  If you are concerned that you may be booking a session that requires payment, call the Grads Photography office to confirm before scheduling.
  • If you wish to purchase a senior ad this year, here is some information to keep in mind
