College Application Workshops

Not sure how to use GAfutures.org to apply to college? Need help navigating Common App? Applying to college is daunting, but your school counselors are here to help! We will get you started, but this workshop will mostly be self-paced. You will be encouraged to work on your own device, but school counselors will be there for moral support and to answer questions as you go.


SENIORS: Please bring your chromebook/personal device, SAT/ACT/ACCUPLACER test scores, and a debit/credit card to pay those pesky application fees. You also might need your social security number to apply to colleges.

This event is for seniors. Caregivers are welcome to attend with their student.
