College Preparation

This course, offered only in the fall semester, is designed to be taken by seniors.

Seniors will go through the process of selecting, applying for, and gaining acceptance into college. Students will immediately narrow the choices for college and gain awareness of important application dates. They will fill out applications, write application essays, produce resumes, seek out financial aid opportunities, and learn to stay organized throughout the process. Each student will apply to at least three colleges and solicit reference letters from mentors or teachers for the admission process. We will also discuss the importance of the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and how to fulfill the FAFSA requirements. This one-semester course serves as a half-year elective credit for graduation.
