Year 13


Hello Year 13!

Question: Ask Your Counselors!

The University Applications Guide is full of information to help you in your journey to university. We have everything you need to learn about quality university choices, timelines, application items, scholarships & other valuable tools.

Please review:
Application Items and Timeline and be prepared to share with your counselors your university list.
Be sure to sign up for the SAT before each deadline and make appointments with your counselors to discuss your university plans.  Once applications are sent be sure the university receives all the items necessary for a full review. Your counselors are here to discuss your university acceptance options and whenever possible help you enroll successfully by graduation.
