College Office

The college office is about your future. Students need to start thinking about what they are going to do after high school. When you enter high school, it's hard to think about college and a career until you get closer to graduation, but it's never too early to start researching your options. Doing so may open your eyes to new and exciting careers you never knew existed or would interest you.


The College Office can be used to help you with your research. We have computers and many other references, including the "Occupational Outlook Handbook", which describes every occupation there is.


The College Office overflows with information on colleges, careers, financial aid, scholarships, open houses, the Armed Forces, college and job fairs, SATs and other exams, as well as summer programs, internships, job opportunities, and naturally there is always good advice and help available to you! I cordially invite all students, in all grades to come and visit our College Office in Room 114B. It's a visit you should all experience!


Counseling and guidance are available to seniors and their parents or guardians in the areas of college selection, financial aid and scholarships. There is a library of college catalogs, viewbooks, reference guides, applications, videos, and internet access available for student use. Students may use the office as long as they DO NOT HAVE A CLASS. Bulletin boards in and around Room 114B (The College Office) display information on scholarships, open houses, and other topics central to the college admission process. There is a scholarship section in the office as well.
