Seniors- it is important to start acting on your college and career plans. Every college has a different deadline, so be sure to check with your college choices and see when is the right time to apply. You should aim to apply by Nov 1st for an early college decision. Also, mark your calendars as FASFA will go live October 1st, which is when students should plan to apply. If you need any assistance or have any questions, Mrs. Coy is available in the library on Wednesdays and Fridays. She also has FREE college swag items, so stop by her office to get yours!
