Students will receive their schedules on Institute Day.

2017 Senior Institute
Online registration begins on Wednesday, April 19 at 8:00 p.m. and ends on Monday, April 24.
Institute Workshop and Session online registration links are accessible from the St. Francis High School home page.
All seniors must register for Workshop 1: Safety On & Off Campus – Session 1, 2, 3, or 4.
NOTE: seniors should register for Workshop 1 first, and then register for their other workshops based on their remaining interest and availability in order to avoid “double-booking” multiple sessions in the same time slot. Each senior should register for one Session 1, one Session 2, one Session 3, and one Session 4 workshop accordingly.
All seniors must register for any three of the other six workshops for a total of four workshops. Note: Workshop 2: Expect the Unexpected is for males only and Workshop 4: Women’s Self-Defense is for females only.
Make sure to register for one workshop in each of the available time slots (10:50-11:30 session, 11:35-12:15 session, 12:50-1:30 session, and 1:35-2:15 session) – do NOT register for two workshops that are conducted at the same time.
If a senior inadvertently makes a mistake in the registration process, please e-mail Mr. Gerdeman at
jgerdemannot email@example.com@sfhscollegeprepnot this.org
. Please make sure that the e-mail includes all the pertinent information in order to resolve the problem accordingly.
As workshops/sessions close, the St. Francis High School Senior Institute web page will be updated accordingly.
