The counseling department will be hosting a Community College Application Day on Thursday, December 19th. This an opportunity for students to complete their college application with our assistance during their study period. Community college applications are free and are done online. Community college is a great way to advance your education for a lower cost and can even be used as a gateway to a 4 year college. Even if you have already applied to 4 year colleges you can still take advantage of this opportunity! This is a wonderful opportunity to get your applications completed before holiday break! Interested students should bring their Chromebooks to guidance during their study on the 19th.


Planning ahead: Community college admission representatives will be coming to meet with interested students in February and will require the application to be completed ahead of time. More specific information on this to come later!
