College Planning

Our college and career planning program seeks to help students identify career interests and then apply to colleges that are good matches with regard to their aspirations, achievements, learning style and needs. Our Director of College and Career Planning oversees our overall college planning and standardized test programs, but all counselors work with students in the post high school planning process. We encourage parents and students to visit the various pages and links provided on our site to to see more post high planning and standardized testing information.

Call or stop in to the School Counseling Office any time to talk about colleges or to ask questions about the planning process.  School Counselors are available to assist students through every step of the college planning process.
