How do you picture your life after high school? No idea? Great, because we're here to help you figure it out! After High School is a series of virtual workshops dedicated to assisting teens and their families with post-secondary decisions. So whether that means college, trade schools, jobs, or a plan uniquely designed by you, tune into one of our online sessions for reliable information and advice!
This session will focus on the basic steps of the college application process, from researching schools to filling out the Common App. What's the difference between early decision and early action? When should I start visiting colleges? Out of thousands of colleges, how do I choose where to apply?
Your host, Erin, is a first-generation college graduate, so she knows the challenges of having to navigate this process on your own. Applying to college is full of new terms and deadlines to juggle, and she's here to give you a road map.
