Early Admission College Applications for Seniors:

All seniors are also reminded to start the college application process for the college/university of their choice. Most colleges/universities have online applications that can be completed quickly and easily. Each college/university has its own individual cutoffs and deadlines so pay close attention to these deadlines. As a general rule, October 15th is considered the best deadline to have all of your college applications completed and submitted! Once you have submitted your college applications, please let Ms. Washington in the guidance office know where you have applied so she can send them your standardized test scores. You will also need to request your transcript through Parchment to complete the application process. If Ms. Washington is not available, fill out the guidance request form in the front office and leave it in her box.

SENIORS are also reminded to check out the Scholarship Board outside the back door of the Guidance Office on a regular basis for scholarship information and opportunities that come through her office.

Also check out the guidance web page on the school website for more information and links to college and scholarship opportunities.
