  • Senior Counseling Focuses on the Application Process

    Seniors receive individual college planning from our College Counselor, which highlights their strengths and interests through one-on-one personal and family conferences throughout the school year. In the process of choosing and applying for a college or university, students consider a number of factors with their college counselor, including location, size, academic challenge, extracurricular opportunities, special services, types of students attending, and costs related to any financial aid which may be provided.

    The SAT and the ACT are given several times a year on our campus, and are available to students from seventh through 12th grade.
