Students who are seniors have a lot to look forward to this year, but it will not come cheap. Events and expenses will cost a significant amount of money and students are wise to set aside money for the end of the year, especially.
For some items, like yearbook and Grad Nite, students can save money by purchasing them early in the year when the prices are lower and payment plans are available. A payment plan, which allows seniors to pay a portion at a time rather than having to come up with the entire price during the spring, can save money and help spread the expenses more evenly throughout the year.

Some of the expected senior expenses for 2019-2020:

Yearbook                    $60 if bought before September 13 (payment plan available)

SAT Reasoning           $49.50 – $64.50 depending on test

(Registration recommended for November test administration)

SAT Subject                starting at $48

ACT                             $52 – $68 depends on test

(Registration recommended for October test administration)

Portrait Package         $35 – $400+

Cap & Gown               $25

Prom                           about $85 per bid

(+transportation, grooming, clothing – rental or purchase, etc.)

Senior Trip                  about $100

Announcements          from $1 per card

Grad Nite                    about $75 (payment plan available)

Other items, like Class of 2020 apparel, admission to games and dances, school jewelry and more is available for purchase throughout the year.
