2020-21 High School Senior Classroom

The 2019/20 High School Senior Classroom opened on August 1, 2019 to provide seniors with a head start to completing their senior-year college-planning tasks. At this point in the college planning process, seniors must choose the modules most appropriate for their college planning needs, such as researching colleges and scholarships, writing essays, requesting recommendation letters, choosing application cycles, completing the FAFSA, reviewing award letters, etc.

Seniors who did not participate in our program in grades 9 – 11 may find this to be an arduous undertaking, however, this is the unfortunate reality of college planning.

Our staff is available to provide guidance, but there is no avoiding the enormous amount of work to be done if you are to expand your college options and avoid amassing tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt.

2020-21 High School Junior Classroom

The High School Junior Classroom provides guidance through the college planning process for high school juniors, sequenced by month. By the end of the school year, high school juniors should have developed a well research list of colleges and scholarships; identified their plans during the summer prior to beginning their senior year of high school; identified a college major; developed an academic résumé; identified recommenders; and be well prepared to begin working on college essays and writing prompts. 

Students should not have expanded their college knowledge, but have increased their narrative and expository writing skills. The Guiding Questions provide in each unit of study, provide a context for conversations between students, parents, teachers, counselors, coaches, mentors, or college advisors.
