College Planning

Applying to college is a big deal, and sometimes overwhelming. In this section you will find several resources provided by College Board that gives very helpful information about the road to college planning

Here are some recommendations for navigating the college application process:

  • A month or more before your applications are due, complete a Transcript Request Online at parchment.com
  • Draft a resume and give it to the teachers as well as your counselor for letters of recommendation.
  • Some colleges require that you request to have your test scores (SAT, ACT or AP) sent directly from the testing board even though they are printed on your transcript. Please visit either collegeboard.com or www.act.org to request test scores be sent to the universities of your choice.
  • Work on your online application and essays, if they are required or recommended.  Watch your deadlines and plan to have them completed well in advance.

If you have any other questions please contact your school counselor by email (located on the counseling staff page) for help.
