Seniors, your attire should take you from Class Day to Senior Luncheon and then on to Graduation. This means that dress code applies at each one of your functions.

Girls:  Black dress and appropriate shoes. The dress must meet dress code for the school. There should be NO halter, strapless, backless, or spaghetti-strap dresses. All dresses should be no shorter than 4” above the knee.  There should be no tennis shoes or cowboy boots worn. Remember, you will be on your feet most of the day, so wear comfortable height heels!

Boys:  Khaki slacks (no jeans) and a white dress shirt with a tie and appropriate shoes (no tennis shoes, cowboy or work boots). Guys should be clean-shaven.  

Class Day has been scheduled for May 17, the day of graduation, so that parents will have only one day to arrange for attendance to all senior functions. Seniors must be present for Class Day in order to participate in the graduation ceremonies on the same evening. Seniors should meet in the gymnasium at 8:00 am on Thursday, May 17. The gymnasium will be set up, and graduation practice will begin promptly at 8:00am (don’t be late)! Awards program begins at 9:00 am.

Senior Luncheon will be at the Wynfrey Hyatt Regency Hotel in Hoover. Lunch will be served at 11:30 am.  You should be at the Wynfrey between 11:00 am and 11:15 am. Again, don’t be late. Senior lunches will be paid for by the school.  Guests must pay $30.00. Traditionally, seniors will invite parents, siblings, and grandparents.   Luncheon reservation forms must be returned to Mrs. Morrow by Friday, April 20th.

Graduation Night – Seniors should be at the Bessemer Civic Center by 6:15 pm to line up for the processional. We will line up in the back near the drink machines. Anyone not dressed appropriately or arriving late will not be allowed to participate in the ceremony. No decorations on the graduation caps. Graduation will begin at 7:00. Remember, being in the graduation ceremony is a privilege. Seniors, this is an extremely important time in your life as well as your parent’s lives. Make yourself and your family proud!

The goal of the counseling office at Bessemer Academy is to assist all of our students in the following three areas:
Personal/Social Issues
Guidance for Academic Goals
Career Counseling
As students grow and change over the years they will be faced with many important decisions and situations. We want to empower them to make the best decisions possible. Students are free to stop by the counselor’s office at any time with teacher’s permission. If the counselor can not meet with them at that time, an appropriate time will be set up.
