• Welcome, Seniors!

     

    Senior Meetings and Individual Appointments

    Seniors will be scheduled for small group meetings in early September. Counselors will outline the appropriate next steps for various post-secondary educational and training goals, including college applications, meeting with military representatives, applying to trade schools, as well as the financial aid process and resources to use for scholarship opportunities. Students are always encouraged to make individual appointments with their counselor to discuss specific details of their personal process.
