Searching for Colleges
As you enter your Junior year of high school, you should begin thinking about what you plan to do after graduation. Looking for the right college or university is a lengthy and complicated process, but your School Counselor is there to help you.
Compare the 200 top values in liberal arts colleges. Create your own list of private or public universities or search by state.
NJ Transfer: NJ Transfer offers a web-based data information system to assist students interested in transferring from a New Jersey community college to a participating four-year institution in the State.
Our Counseling Department presented a detailed seminar on how to complete and submit applications for the best possible results. Topics included Deadlines, Organization, The Common Application, Early admission and Early Decision programs, obtaining and submitting letters of recommendation, and much more!
As Juniors continue their search for colleges, we understand that school closures and social distancing make that process much more difficult. To ease your anxiety about applying to college, the School Counseling Department has compiled this list of colleges and universities that have gone TEST OPTIONAL for the Class of 2024. As always, please contact your counselor if you have any questions. Stay safe!
