This program for rising high school seniors helps college-bound students develop a plan to prepare their college applications. Since many students struggle to begin collecting the components that make up the application packet, we'll get them started with their college applications and essays. Students will prepare an activity list, which can be turned into a résumé if they wish, for their application packet. In addition, they will organize all of their materials and information in an individualized reference binder. This program is designed for students who are motivated to work.
