    Due to the high probability of thunderstorms approaching our area this weekend, we have had to make a time change for our Graduation on Saturday.
    Our commencement will now begin at 11:00 am on Saturday, May 21.  Seniors need to report to the north gym by 9:45 am for check-in and line-up.
    Gates will open to the public at 10:00 am and no tickets are necessary for entry. A reminder that no large bags will be permitted and we will follow our football game security protocols.
    Graduation Dress Code - With the expected warm temperatures, students should dress in cool clothing while adhering to the school dress code policy.
    A livestream link will be posted on our Manatee High website for those guests wishing to view from home - CLICK HERE

  • Seniors - as you plan for "life after high school", one very important step is to complete the FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  Even if you don't know what college you will attend, or even if you are going to college, you should fill out the FAFSA.  It will determine if you qualify for federal grants, loans or work study.  Don't think you can afford college? Complete the FAFSA and see if you might get a grant!  Federal financial aid can be used at any accredited college in the US - including Manatee Technical College and State College of Florida.

    The FAFSA opens October 1, 2021CLICK HERE for information about FAFSA workshops - free help sessions to assist you in completing the application.

    Understanding Financial Aid
    FAFSA website
    Create your FSA ID (how you will electronically sign the FAFSA)

    In addition to FAFSA, all seniors should complete the Florida Financial Aid Application (FFAA) to be considered for state grants, including Florida Bright Futures. It only takes a few minutes but should be done before graduation. The FFAA also opens October 1, 2021.

    And seniors, check the MHS Scholarship List weekly for available scholarships. Apply for as many as you can! The list is on the College and Career Center page of this website.
