COLLEGE & CAREER CENTER NEWS

COLLEGE APPLICATIONS

  • Two weeks left to get college application support from your counselors!  Stop in during Tutorial periods between now and November 22.  Remember, school is CLOSED November 25-29.  College portals get bogged down during the last two weeks of November.  Finish early and eliminate the stress!  

  • College letters of recommendation - Advanced notice is always appreciated when asking for letters of recommendation.  This is a busy time of year and we encourage students to be considerate of time constraints when requesting letters of support from their mentors.
