Life After High School (formerly Senior Summit)

I wanted to share a resource that we hope will be helpful to you at this point in your senior year. This is a short video that the College and Career Readiness Coaches/Counselors and I made about the process of preparing for life after high school, including topics such as applying for college, financial aid, scholarships, and several other topics.
