Why should I go to college?
 
COLLEGE/CAREER
We offer college counseling to all students seeking post high school education. Designed to help students identify and clarify their abilities, interests and goals, college counseling assists students in making informed educational decisions. The formal college planning process begins in the junior year with individual and group sessions conducted by the school's guidance counselor. These sessions continue through senior year.
