About LVHS

Welcome to Locust Valley High School, a student-centered school that stresses excellence in an environment of high expectations and high support. Our size is ideal with fewer than 700 students allowing individuals to be well known and appropriately recognized for their unique and special talent. Our gracious and expansive surroundings provide a clean, safe and attractive environment for students. Above all, Locust Valley High School is an academic institution that challenges students to reach their highest level.

Students at Locust Valley High School are encouraged to participate in our wide array of college-level courses and research programs, as well as study our numerous elective offerings. Outside of the classroom, students enjoy a broad array of co-curricular and extra-curricular options. Our journalism program and school newspaper are recognized perennially as among the finest in the State of New York. Locust Valley's music program is highly rated, with one-third of the student population enrolled and numerous students receiving All State recognition. The majority of our students participate in extracurricular activities; and despite our relatively small size, Locust Valley fields teams in fifteen varsity sports.

We welcome your interest in our school and encourage you to contact us by e-mail or telephone if you have further questions.

Eight Weeks of College and Career Guidance – One Topic at a Time

The Locust Valley High School counselors are introducing eight weeks of college and career counseling that will prepare sophomores and juniors for the college and career exploration and application process in an easy-to-follow format.

Assistant Principal Michelle Villa said that thinking about all that needs to be done for college applications can be overwhelming. She and the high school counseling team have broken down the tasks into small chunks, making the information easy to follow.

“We have a lot of information to share, and by spreading it out over eight weeks, it feels more manageable,” she said. She further explained that each week would focus on a theme, from how to register for college admissions tests to applying for financial aid and scholarships.

Videos, presentations, interviews and links will be shared each week for students and parents to view. Often, step-by-step instructions will be shown. For example, during week one, high school counselor Jaimie Dickstein shares a video on how to register for the SAT and ACT. She breaks it down from logging on to what type of photos are acceptable to upload.

“The information we are sharing is important and we want to make it as easy as possible for students to follow,” Ms. Villa said. “We hope that by the end of the eight weeks, students will not only have a knowledge base for what to expect, but that their anxiety about this topic will be lessened.”

Each week’s content will be emailed through February and March. Topics, in order, will include SAT/ACT, finding the college that fits best for you, career exploration, how to stand out in the admissions process, the college application, the college visit, financial aid and scholarships, and advice from current and former students.
