Former TEAM Academy students who are seniors this year will come back to answer our questions about high school and how they chose the college they are going to. Here are the dress up days for college week:

Wednesday, May 19 - Uniform Day

Thursday, May 20 - College Day

Friday, May 21 - Career Day
