The College Counseling/Placement Office works with students and parents to council and advise students on their college choices. Each student is advised and assisted individually throughout the college process. The College Counseling/Placement Office houses a variety of resources to assist students with post-high school planning. Computer programs and printed materials provide information on colleges and occupations. Even thought the official start of the college process begins early in junior year, the College Placement Office services all students in grades 9-12.
The College Counseling/Placement Office will not only provide materials, it will also assist in all aspects of the college process.
