Stop by the Counseling Office to fill out a transcript request form from Mrs. Smith. Although we strive to get the requested transcripts done the same day, we ask that you allow at least a 24-hour turnaround time. Make sure to order as many as you need for any colleges and scholarships you will apply.  
Current students can access their transcripts through their Aeries Portal. Simply click on Grades and scroll down to the Transcripts section. Students can then view the transcript for information needed for college applications and scholarships.
