Junior College Workshops Start in January (Juniors ONLY)

Every year our three college counselors (Patty Kovacs, Abigale Wagner and Melissa Warehall) conduct workshops for Juniors upon their return from winter break in January through May.  The students meet in groups weekly at a time that fits their schedule.  The purpose of these workshops is to help students prepare for and navigate the college search process.  The workshops give general information needed by every student beginning the process and does not replace the individual meetings students have with counselors.  Below is a list of the curriculum by week:
