Senior pictures for 2016-17 yearbook

This year Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School has made arrangements for Prestige Portraits to take photos of all of seniors. This will ensure that every senior is represented in the senior portrait gallery of the yearbook and that each portrait meets yearbook specifications.
The photography sessions will take place in The Auditorium at High School. Prestige Portraits offers indoor and outdoor photography and a variety of session types including a no-charge session. We have asked Prestige to pre-schedule an appointment for each senior at the school. These appointments can be rescheduled or cancelled at your convenience.
