COLLEGE VISITATIONS

The student/family visit to a college campus is an important part of the post-secondary planning process. Students are encouraged to schedule college interviews and campus tours to help them make more informed choices.  Often these visits cannot be scheduled around  the high school calendar.  Juniors and seniors will be allowed five college visits that must be completed by May 1st of their senior year.  Military visits include tours, information sessions, interviews, placement exams and other military obligations.  Upon return to school the student must bring a note from the school visited to the main office.
