Parents of Seniors

We have a senior parent night scheduled for Sept 9th, from 6-7:30pm in the cafeteria. You will get more information about caps and gowns, senior year activities and academics/college information as it relates to senior year.  There is a financial aid night scheduled for the end of January 2015. More information will be available closer to the date.

There is a Careers and Colleges Expo on Thursday, Sept 18th at the College of Central Florida, Bldg 6 (the Gym) in Ocala scheduled from 5:30-7:30pm. This walk through type event will have over 40 various public and private schools from around the state of Florida and out of state. Representatives will be available for questions and some may even take college applications on site. Please call 352-854-2322 ext 1543 for more information.

PERT

The Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (P.E.R.T.) is Florida's customized common placement test. The purpose of the P.E.R.T. is accurate course placement based on the student's skills and abilities. The P.E.R.T. is aligned with the Postsecondary Readiness Competencies identified by Florida faculty as necessary for success in entry-level college credit coursework. The P.E.R.T. assessment system includes Placement and Diagnostic tests in mathematics, reading and writing.

Students who score 106 or better on Reading and 103 or better on Writing portions of the PERT may be eligible for the English dual enrollment classes taught at VHS. Students who score 123 or better on the Math portion may be eligible for the math dual enrollment classes taught at VHS.  Students who are eligible for the English dual enrollment classes and math dual enrollment classes may also be eligible for science dual enrollment classes.
