Congratulations on beginning your senior year! Summer is the time to take your senior portrait for the yearbook.  All senior portraits must be submitted electronically to the yearbook advisor by Friday, September 21.  

Senior portraits are not taken by MCP, but can be done by a photographer of your choosing. Families are responsible for the photo fees and services, and MCP is not affiliated with any company.  Images must be submitted via ; no hardcopies, disks or flash drives please. Please title the image: "Last name First name senior portrait".

  • 300 ppi (pixels per inch)
  • sRGB color space
  • JPEG saved at maximum quality (12 or no compression)
  • Attire must be modest according to MCP dress code policy

The yearbook advisor will approve the image before it can be printed in the yearbook. Per school dress code, attire should be professional and modest.  MCP yearbook has the responsibility to decline any image which does not meet the above specifications, and is not responsible for fees associated with re-shoots or for photos submitted after deadline.

Senior Recognition Ads

Parents, senior recognition ad pages will be available for you to purchase and design beginning in October.  Sales will close in November, and the ad spaces always sell out.  If you are interested, it is a great idea to begin collecting old photos over the summer so that you can construct the most meaningful page possible.  Communication on pricing and procedures for designing the ads will be emailed to you in September.  This is always a beautiful way to honor your student!
