College Planning Guide Class of 2025

Winter 2024
Dear Class of 2025:

Although graduation may seem like a long way off, your college search process begins now!  Planning for your post-secondary goals is a multi-step process.  It requires your time, organization and effort.  You will probably have many questions, and you might not be quite sure where to begin. This guide has been created for you and your families to use over the next year to inform you of all of the steps you need to take.

It is essential that you take advantage of the resources available to you in the High School Guidance and Counseling Office.  Your school counselors have the skills and expertise to guide you through the college process.  As you research your best-fit options, we strongly encourage you to ask questions of us as they arise.    

Remember that your junior and senior years are the springboard to your future. The grades you earn, the activities in which you are involved, and your foresight in planning all have a great impact on being accepted to the college of your choice.  Don’t lose steam, and make sure you pay close attention to deadlines!

The need to be an "educated consumer" in the college selection process is very real because of the overall impact sending a child to college or further technical training has on the entire family structure and lifestyle. Our counselors are sensitive to this reality and are willing to help you as often as needed. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact your counselor at any time.
