About The Journalism Program

Our student staff members love welcoming new students to our team to produce the website (The Lancer Feed), print magazine (Image), videos, social media (@thelancerfeed) and yearbook (Legend) and more importantly, we need new staff members to fill the spots of our graduating seniors.

Being part of the journalism program is awesome. The prerequisite courses will prepare you to work on any of the staffs. Our Production classes are very different from traditional classes. Student editors are responsible for the staffs and their work. You will have a variety of opportunities and choices to work in areas and on projects that specifically interest you. Students on the staffs also get the chance to travel to national journalism conventions (after COVID, at least) and compete in contests. Also, working on a high school publication looks fantastic on college applications.

Specifically, we are looking for students who like having a choice and a voice in what they do, are proud of having an impact and making a difference and who like moving forward, becoming smarter, better, and more accomplished. If these attributes describe you, then you’d be great for our team.

To get involved, all you need to do is register for the appropriate classes when you make your schedule for next year. There are three prerequisite courses and three Production classes.  Many students take a prerequisite class first semester freshman year and then join one of the Production teams and stay with it for the rest of their high school career. Some even take multiple courses!

Prerequisite Classes
• Journalism Writing & Reporting (1 semester Language Arts elective credit/best for News or Yearbook Production)
• Visual Journalism (1 semester CTE credit/best for Yearbook Production)
