College Admissions Seminar

Here is a link to the Guidance Team’s College Admission Seminar presentation, as well as links to several of the handouts we have shared with our juniors: If you are the parent of a junior, your child’s guidance counselor would greatly appreciate your responses to the questions on our Parent Brag Sheet. In addition, the Guidance Team recently met with juniors in their English classes, encouraging them to step up their college research and begin making plans to address college admissions testing (the SAT and/or ACT). A link to the PowerPoint presentation follows: College Admissions Testing and the College Search Process .
