Class of 2019

Get Ready to Apply Presentation Information

Thank you to all the parents and students who attended my presentation on February 26, 2018.  As promised here is the PowerPoint and handouts that will be helpful to all of you throughout the rest of this semester, the summer and the beginning of the senior year.  

 

One reminder, please make sure you/your student is signed up to take the ACT or SAT in March or April.  They can also take the exam(s) in June but if they wait until September or October we sometimes don't get scores back in time to meet some admissions and scholarship deadlines.  To sign up for the exams visit http://www.actstudent.org/ for the ACT or https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/register for the SAT.
