MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR SUMMER!
Take summer classes, volunteer, get an internship/part-time job, DO SOMETHING! Especially, if you are a JUNIOR, this is crucial to staying COMPETITIVE for college applications.
College Essays/Personal Statements - Juniors planning to apply to 4 year universities with college prompt requirements, start early. At the very least, look over the questions so you may see what you need to do this summer or at the start of the school year to keep yourself competitive. If you have your first draft done by the time school starts, you can make an appointment with Ms. An at the start of the school year to review your PIQs/personal statements.
Work Permits - IF you get offered a job over the summer and you are UNDER 18 years of age, head on over to Alhambra High School's College & Career Center to get a WORK PERMIT. You will need to bring an ID and your Social Security Card. Call their office for more information, 626-943-6990. The MKHS CCC Office is CLOSED for the summer. We will see you on the first day back!
Scholarships are available for ALL grade levels. Check out the online Scholarship Bulletin (updated 6/5/19 for scholarships with deadlines up to December). Start early, don't procrastinate.
Career Technical Education classes - open to all 9-12th grade students. Some classes have a pre-requisiste, see schedule for more details.
