Senior Ads

The AFHS yearbook staff would like to invite loved ones to place a senior ad – a personal message of congratulations accompanied by some photographs - for the Apex Friendship graduate in their lives. 

To participate, all you do is select an ad size, choose a favorite photo (or photos), compose a message, and then submit everything - even payment - online.

Here's a breakdown of the steps:

Step 1: Choosing an ad size.  Senior ads are sold in 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and whole page increments - see the gallery below to get a sense of scale (you can click on the images to enlarge them):

Here's a breakdown of the pricing - keep in mind that there's a discounted early deadline (Sunday, October 21th) and a late deadline (Friday, November 30th):

Step 3: Submitting your photographs.  Photographs can be submitted via email - just attach your images and send them to

Senior Portraits

To be included in the yearbook, all seniors must have senior portraits taken by Prestige Portraits.  Here are your options:

  • Go to your photography session scheduled in June.
  • Have your senior portrait taken during the make-up date, Wednesday, October 10th (during school hours).
  • Schedule an appointment to be photographed at Prestige's studio by Thursday, November 1st. Those interested should contact Prestige via email (prestigeraleigh@lifetouch.comor by phone (919-377-0026).

In addition, if a student wants to choose the pose that'll appear in the yearbook, they must log on to Prestige's website and make that selection (login info should be provided by Prestige).  If you have any trouble with this step, contact Prestige.  This selection must be made by Monday, November 12th - otherwise the yearbook staff will chose an appropriate pose!
