Photographers will also be on campus Oct. 19th & 20th, for seniors, but only formal shots will be taken on these days (meaning only the shots that go into the yearbook.)   No casuals or other poses will be done on the campus days. NO appointments will be granted after these dates. If you want to schedule for the school date, you must call the studio to make an appointment.

A few days following gradutaion, proofs will be emailed to the email address submitted on that information card. You may purchase proofs by responding to that email from GRAD Images.



Senior Yearbook Ads

The bells on campus resound, a reminder of the final year your child will walk the halls of University High School. This is it!

Your child is a part of our 2017-2018 graduating class, which means they will have their formal pictures in the yearbook, and you have the opportunity to purchase the timeless keepsake of a senior ad.

The yearbook will be out at the end of the year, and there is no better way to tell your graduate how proud you are of them.

These ads usually contain short messages of congratulations, best wishes, or continued success. The wording of the message is completely up to you, but this must be included and MUST be typed. Include the student’s name, your message, and how you wish it to be signed (i.e. “Love Always, Mom and Dad”). Along with the message, please include pictures. The more space you purchase, the more pictures we can fit. While the choice of photos is up to you, they must be of good quality (300 DPI/High resolution). If they aren’t, they will look grainy and pixelated once printed. Photos taken off of online sites are generally very poor quality and not printable. However, iPhone photos from a 5 or higher can be emailed at their highest quality. Any specific questions about quality can be sent via email to [email protected]

Orders can be completed in one step online at Otherwise, if you choose to submit a physical Senior Ad Order Form (see below)to the school, photos can be sent to us electronically at [email protected] along with your typed message. In necessary situations, we will also take any original, physical photos, and once we scan them, we will turn them into the front office for pick up.

There is a limited amount of space available in the yearbook for senior ads. Completed orders will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
