College Choice

Reminder, once you have made a final decision on college for next year, please be sure to notify all other colleges where you have been accepted of your decision not to attend. This allows those colleges to consider other students placed on a wait list.

Also, please let your school counselor know where you will be attending so we may send your final transcript and health records out in July!


Please be sure to contact your school counselor if you have any questions about graduation requirements, scholarships, colleges, employment, or anything in between!
