Thank you to all of you that joined us this morning for our Knights of the Round Table: College Application Q & A with Seniors. Our Seniors provided invaluable insight to the college application process from a student perspective by sharing their experiences of applying to and being accepted by four-year institutions such as Vanderbilt University, the University of Florida, Florida State University, the University of North Florida, the University of Central Florida, the University of Virginia, and Warner University. They covered topics such as dual enrollment/AP classes, financial aid, writing admissions essays, college athletics, and how and when to apply. The Seniors also helped parents and students by answering questions they had about the college application process as well as what Juniors can expect as they transition into their Senior year. We would like to thank our Senior panel for their willingness to participate in the event. We would also like to thank our PTSO for providing breakfast items for our attendees- your continued support for our Guidance events allows us to serve Creekside students and their families.
Special thanks to Dawn Wiggins, LCSW, for her presentation on “Coping with Anxiety as a High School Student.” We had a great discuss on ways to reduce stress and anxiety and hope you found the session helpful. Thank you to Alex Fernandez and Gina Geloso for donating coffee and donuts for our session.

St. Johns River State college will be on Creekside’s campus to administer the CPT exams for any student wishing to participate in Dual Enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year. In order to sign up for the test on a specific day, a Dual Enrollment application must be completely completed and turned into Ms. Fornera by the deadline date. The college will only test 75 students per test session and we will test based on a first come first serve basis.
Students can pick up a Dual Enrollment application in guidance on Mrs. Hemmer’s desk. Below are the test dates and deadlines (Deadline means the completed application MUST be turned in by the date indicated below. If a test session is already full, then the student will be moved to the next test session). It is recommended to turn in an application sooner rather than later as the test sessions fill up rather quickly.
|CPT TEST DATE
|Tuesday, January 16, 2018 – TEST DATE IS CLOSED/FULL
||Friday, December 8, 2017
| Monday, January 22, 2018 – TEST DATE IS CLOSED/FULL
||Friday, December 15, 2017
| Friday, February 23, 2018 – TEST DATE IS CLOSED/FULL
||Wednesday, January 17, 2018
Students will be notified 1 week prior to the test date where they will test. Students will be notified via the email address they placed on the DE application of what date they are testing on, the time and the room location at Creekside.
SJRSC will be on Creekside’s campus during all 3 lunches on November 1st, in the courtyard for all current DE students and potential DE students for questions. Please encourage your child to stop by the table to talk with a SJRSC dual enrollment specialist.
For Dual Enrollment eligibility and course offerings, please contact your child’s guidance counselor for more information.
Now is the time for students to complete the FAFSA application and create a FSA ID username and password. Below are a few resources to help you.
