Hello, ECHS Seniors,


At ECHS one of our primary goals is to support you and your parents in the college admission process. Remember that the ECHS counseling website has multiple resources for you and your parents to utilize. In addition, we are pleased to announce a great opportunity coming our way! Please save the date and plan on attending one Fall College Boot Camp (Virtual) on August 31st or September 1st from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm. Here are the links: August 31: College Boot Camp 8/31 September 1: College Boot Camp 9/1


Planning to Attend? Please fill out this form.


General Reminders:

  • Online attendance will be limited as this is for all RRISD high schools, so please log on early!

  • ECHS students may choose to attend either College Boot Camp event. Please only attend one of the two virtual events so that others may have an opportunity to attend also.

  • Reps from in and out-of-state colleges will be available to answer student questions.

  • This is a Q & A panel boot camp; there are no presentations to specific college readiness topics.


Boot Camp Preparation:

  • Begin brainstorming questions to ask a college representative. Topics for discussion may include: college essays, resumes, general application questions, etc.


NOTE: You may not see a representative from the specific institution you are interested in. However, the college admissions counselors in attendance have multiple years of experience, and many of them have worked for multiple institutions. This is a great opportunity to meet with several professionals in the college admissions field at a single event!


General Rules:

  1. You must edit your name when entering the event to “First Name Last Name – High School”. For example “Helen Holmes-Early College High School.:

  2. You must turn off your Mic and Video.

  3. Please use the chat feature in the Main Zoom Room to ask General Questions. Questions will be moderated by RRISD school counselors.


We appreciate your patience. This is the first virtual College Boot Camp for RRISD, and we want to make sure everything goes smoothly. Remember that the college application process is yours. You do not have to take all or any of the advice you receive; however, the college representatives on our panel will be an excellent resource for you.


If you have questions after the event, email me at helen_holmes@roundrockisd.org.


Helen C. Holmes, M.S.E.
