Senior Corner

Welcome Class of 2024 to your senior year at NC. You’re officially upperclassmen and we’re counting on you to set a great example for all the juniors, freshmen and sophomores. Senior year comes along with exciting privileges like parking on campus (mind the construction), Grad Dance and Blast Off. All things 2024 can be found on this site, in D571 (your grade level support office), or with your class sponsor, Mr. Grays.

Senior Honor Code

The application for Senior Honor Code is now open! You can either scan the QR code or click on the link here to submit your application. All applications must be received by the end of the day on Thursday, August 31st. We are finalizing what the incentives will be, but you must submit your application during that time to be considered. If you have any questions, email your 12th Grade Assistant Principal, Ms. Harmeyer at


There is still a lot of construction in and around the building, so please be mindful when driving and give yourself plenty of time to find a good parking spot. Park only in designated “Student Parking” areas and ensure your parking tag is visible at all times to avoid being ticketed and/or towed. Parking Passes can be purchased online.
