IMPORTANT SENIOR INFORMATION
Wherever you plan to continue your education after high school, as early as possible, visit the institutions’ website and familiarize yourself with as much information as possible. Make sure you are, “In the Know” with applying to post-secondary institutions. Since the majority of students only attend two days a week, you may use the other days to attend preview days at universities/colleges.
Here are some of the things that are necessary for success as you plan for post-secondary opportunities:
