Counselors hosting college application party for seniors

Seniors are encouraged to sign up for the college application party being held on Thursdays during advisory.  Regina Williams, 12th grade counselor, and Tamra Day, 11th grade counselor, assist the students step by step in submitting their college and scholarship/financial aid applications,  registering for the ACT or Compass college admission tests, and researching career paths.  The counselors make it a fun party atmosphere by providing snacks. The seniors come away more confident and not as stressed about enrolling for college.
