Community College Week by Mrs. Burns, Lead Guidance Counselor

Many members of the Senior class will be participating in Community College Week! Beginning this Friday and resuming after vacation, Guidance will be hosting several activities geared toward informing students about what the Community Colleges have to offer, helping them apply, and smoothing over the transition from high school student to college student. Friday morning we will present Community College options to students who have expressed interest in the certificate, two-year, and MassTransfer programs in the Lecture Hall. We will be hosting On-the-Spot Admissions with Massasoit on Tuesday, February 28 in the Library, and will have several Community Colleges visit us in the cafeteria during senior lunch. We're looking forward to lots of participation!
