College Applications and Preparation

For many students the focus has now switched to college and the next stage of their education. We suggest using this time to continue to study and prepare for higher education. We have provided a wealth of resources for our students to help them prepare.

Many local colleges are also providing online resources which will develop foundation knowledge.
