Upcoming Courses


This program for rising high school seniors helps college-bound students develop a plan to prepare their college applications. As 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. In addition, they will organize all of their materials and information in an individualized reference binder.

Every week on Sunday, starting on 09/15/19 and ending on 09/22/19, INTC, Room 229
