Monthly College Counseling Update: March 2019

Seniors 

Final college decisions will be out next week and all seniors will transition to the final stage of the college search process - making their decision. This will include reviewing aid and scholarship offers, attending accepted student programs, and comparing all options. College Counseling is here to assist students and families with any part of the final decision, including waitlist strategies.

We had our first College Coffee to discuss decisions and moving into the final stage of the process and over thirty students attended. Graduation and Scholarship Surveys will be sent soon.

Juniors 


About half of the Class of 2020 have completed their family meeting. It is important to get this scheduled. Enjoy your Spring Break trips! Please report back after you return.
