Preparing for College

The summer before your senior year is an exciting time.  Choosing where you will attend college is one of the most important decisions you and your family will enjoy making.  The more prayer, time and effort you put into the decision making process, the more content you will be that you have made the best decision.

To facilitate this process, here are some helpful websites you may want to consider browsing, in addition to the individual college websites.  These websites are helpful resources in the application process, testing, Financial Aid and scholarship information, as well as for potential student athletes and ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps).

College Fairs

Why attend college fairs?  College fairs are unique opportunities for you to meet college admissions people face to face and begin the process of showing colleges your “demonstrated interest.” They are especially useful if you don’t have the time or resources to personally visit colleges. Not all colleges in the U.S. are represented at these fairs, but you will usually find at least some that are of interest to you. You never know, you might even find a few schools that you have never heard of that eventually end up at the top of your college list!
