PLANNING FOR COLLEGE

For today’s students, everything is online–registering for your SAT & ACT tests and getting results, applying to colleges, submitting financial aid information. Even your first news of getting accepted (or not) is learned by email. The SMHS counselors have compiled an extensive list of resources for college planning. Please visit the “Helpful Links” page on the SMHS Counseling Department website for detailed descriptions of the organizations listed below. You might find it handy to “bookmark” the Counseling Department sites for future reference.
