Transcripts

Students applying to college can order official high school transcripts through Parchment. Students can opt to withhold rank (except in regards to Texas A&M system schools) and should email Mrs. Stich (stephanie.stich@leanderisd.org) the Withhold Rank Form (pg.4 here) any time before transcripts are ordered.

Several colleges require students to self-report grades as opposed to sending an official transcript with their initial application. Students can view their transcript for free via Parchment by clicking on the transcript icon in the order window of Parchment. If the free view is not the most current, click “update” and “send” at the bottom of the transcript to remove the old transcript and request an updated version. This request is processed by our registrar and is not instantaneous. 

Senior Workdays

Register here to attend a Senior Workday during PIT, available on Wednesdays & Thursdays in Lab 1303. Senior Workday provides expertise and support regarding applications, transcripts, test scores, letters of recommendation, resumes, brief essay review, financial aid, and any other post-secondary applications and processes.

Senior Portraits

All seniors must take a Senior Portrait through Photo Texas by January 17 in order to be included in the yearbook and subsequent end of year senior slideshows/award presentations.  Details and FAQ's can be found HERE.

Project Graduation

Graduation Night is just around the corner! This year VHS Project Grad will host the Senior Party on May 28 at High 5 in Lakeway immediately following graduation. Our goal is to make this the #bestpartyever for our 2020 Seniors by creating a safe and fun environment with no alcohol, drugs or vape.
 

Over $30,000 needs to be raised to make this a night to remember, and we need the help of our Vandegrift community. Sponsorships start at $75 and we welcome donations from individuals, families, or businesses. All sponsors receive promotional benefits. To review sponsorships and donate, please visit our website. Don't forget about company matches to double your support!

Senior Party Registration is open! Tickets are $50 per attendee and a bundle that includes a ticket, the senior wall, and a 2020 commemorative blanket is $75. Ticket and bundle prices will go up after Spring Break. Register early to get the best pricing.
