College Planning

Senior Meetings. During the first two weeks of September seniors must schedule an individual meeting with their college counselor to discuss their application process.

Senior Night with College Counseling. On Thursday, September 5, seniors will attend The Application Process: The Trends and What to Expect. The College Counseling team will present the latest information on college trends and discuss the application process, timeline, and expectations. We will be joined by a guest speaker. The program is required for seniors, and parents are encouraged to attend. It will be recorded and posted on the web for parents unable to attend in person.
