Harrison Graduation Rate

Congratulations to Hoya Nation! In case you haven’t heard, the Georgia Department of Education just released high school graduation rates. Harrison is ranked second out of the seventeen Cobb County School District (CCSD) high schools, and we have increased our graduation rate from last year’s 95.56% to this year’s graduation rate of 97.10%! Harrison is one of only four schools with a graduation rate above 96%. Our graduation rate is a testament to our culture at Harrison and the relationships that we have with our students. Our entire faculty and staff, as well as our parents, are all deeply committed to the well-being and academic success of every student. We are also thankful to our feeder schools who send us students who are well-prepared for the challenges of high school. Lots to celebrate at Hoya Nation! Please visit Cobbcast to read the CCSD graduation press release. Please visit the Georgia Department of Education site to read their press release.

PSAT

Harrison High School provides the PSAT free of charge for Harrison freshmen and sophomores and for a low fee for juniors and seniors as a practice for the SAT. We administer the PSAT at the high school. Underclassmen take it for the experience of taking a test of this nature. Juniors take the test as practice for the SAT, and their scores determine who qualifies for the national merit scholarship competition. With the exception of a written essay, the PSAT matches the format of the SAT. You can find further information about it on the College Board website

Harrison High School will administer the PSAT during October in the fall semester. The cost is free of charge for 9th and 10th graders. 11th grade students may register for the PSAT during the fall. Registration will take place online. Payment for the test is $20 for all juniors. Upon registration, students will receive a PSAT prep book in their advisement class in plenty of time to adequately prepare.
