College Visits 

The Guidance Office is available to assist with setting up college visits.  We highly recommend that students visit a college campus in the fall to get a feel for the college and the programs they offer.  Students should meet with an admissions representative and the financial aid office, and visit with a professor or advisor in the academic department they wish to pursue.  Students should also have a walking tour of campus and a tour of the dorms. If you would like help setting up a visit, Mrs. Bosma or Mrs. St. Clair can assist you!

Selective Service Registration

All males 18-25 (including U.S. citizens living abroad and non-citizen immigrant males residing in the U.S.) must register for the Selective Service. The Selective Service is a government agency whose job is to provide untrained manpower for the Armed Forces if there's a national emergency. You should register within 30 days of your 18th birthday. Not registering is breaking the law. If prosecuted, you could be sent to prison for up to 5 years and may be fined up to $250,000. In addition, if you fail to register, you cannot qualify for federal student grants or loans for college, job training benefits, and many state and federal laws.
