Attend a Fall Open House

Fall is a beautiful time of year to visit college campuses, especially some of the western county campuses with the fall foilage in full peak. Students are back in session and excitement fills the air. Meet faculty, take a tour, talk to current students, and maybe even take in a game or a meal in the cafeteria. It's the perfect chance to experience all that a school has to offer!

Oct. 7th- SAT

There is still time to register for the October 7th SAT. Pay an additional late fee and sign up by September 9th! Remember to PREP - free through Khan Academy!

Oct 28th- ACT

The regular registration deadline for the October 28th ACT test is coming up on September 19th. See your guidance office for info on fee waivers, if you receive free/reduced lunch. Remember to PREP - free through CareerCruising: Method Test Prep!
