With the early action deadlines coming to a close it’s time to start thinking about those regular decision college application deadlines! Make sure you are paying attention to the deadlines for each of the schools you are applying to as some of them will be over winter break. YOU are responsible for keeping track of your deadlines. Remember you will need to request transcripts for those schools before the break as we will not be available to submit anything during the break. We are asking that you have all of your requests in by DECEMBER 13th. If you have any questions please come see your counselor. This notification is for students who have college applications due by January 7th.
Are you stressing about how to pay for college? Starting in the Spring semester we will be hosting scholarship workshops for students. We have arranged 6 dates throughout the semester during 7th hours to have students come down and explore scholarships. We will provide you with multiple data bases to look at, and help you narrow down options.
ICAP and Scholarship Class Meeting
Mark your calendars! On Wednesday January 10th we will be meeting with you to complete your district required ICAP.
