    JUNIORS INTERESTED IN APPLYING TO HIGHLY SELECTIVE COLLEGES

    Juniors, are you planning on applying to a Highly Selective School next year? Would you like a head start on applications and learn how to best prepare for the process? If so, please join the LHS Counselors on Wednesdays from April 17th - May 15th for a help group centered solely on this process. Students will learn more about what Highly Selective Colleges look for in applicants, the different types of applications and deadlines and how to pace yourself through the process. This is an open group, but for maximum benefit, students should plan to attend all 5 sessions. For questions, please email Mrs. McCallum in the Counseling office at trilaina.mccallum@lps53.org.

    *If you missed the first session there are make up dates available. Stop in the counseling office for questions or details.
