About Huntington's' Senior Class

Welcome to Huntington High School Sign

The Tradition Continues...

It’s been a tradition since July 1862; Huntington High School’s senior class has been an exceptionally talented group of young men and women. Among Class of 2023 members, more than 90 percent of graduates moved on to college studies with the rest headed to branches of the United States military, vocational and technical programs, a “gap” year before beginning college or immediate full-time employment

On the Leading Edge

Huntington’s most recent graduating seniors were accepted into a broad array of top tier colleges, including many of the leading colleges and universities in the world. The teenagers earned tens of millions in academic and athletic scholarships and awards.

Shining Stars

Huntington seniors have long shined as scholars, athletes, musicians, actors, artists, engineers and scientists and mock trial courtroom warriors. They have taken leading roles in community service initiatives and humanitarian projects and have captured every conceivable honor.

Few high schools can match the record of Huntington graduates and none can surpass it.

Senior Class Privileges

Lunch Periods

All seniors who are in good standing may leave the building during their lunch periods. They must leave their I.D. cards at the designated area before they leave. All seniors must have a signed Agreement for Senior Privileges form on file in the Main Office.

Senior Parking

Seniors may also park in assigned spaces in the school parking lot. A permit must be obtained in the Security Office.


Seniors who return to school late from lunch due to car problems or accident must call the Dean’s Office (673-2007) as soon as possible before the end of the school day in order for the lateness or absence to class not to count as a cut. A follow-up call by the end of the same day from the parent is also required to substantiate that this absence was not a cut. Seniors who return late without a valid reason will lose their senior privilege for one week. Subsequent infractions will be handled progressively.
