    College & Career Center  (@awhscollegecareer) 
     
    Welcome and Overview
     
    In the College & Career Center, students can find information on colleges, gap year programs, and summer opportunities.  Additionally, students can access computers to search for information on careers, colleges, scholarships, as well as find community service and job opportunity postings. Please visit early and often!
     
    In the fall, the Center is a flurry of activity with close to 100 college admission representatives visiting our campus. Seniors are encouraged to attend college application workshops on campus (dates/times TBA) and research/apply for scholarships through Naviance.
     
    My hope is that students leave high school well-prepared and excited to embark on their next journey, no matter where they land. It is also my hope that students embrace the process with confidence and curiosity and enjoy this time rather than succumbing to the pressures that often goes with the college application process. There are thousands of colleges and universities out there, as well as career options and gap year programs to consider.  Keep in mind - what might be good for your best friend may not be what's best for you, so keep your interests and wishes alive and strong!
     
    Trust your instincts and take the initiative to ask questions so that you can learn about all of your options. I look forward to hearing about your plans and helping in any way I can.
     
    I have a long history with our school, one that started years before I began working here. Feel free to learn more by reading my Bio.

    Juniors: If you decide to create a Common Application to apply to colleges, please note the following: 

    Every year on August 1, Common App launches a refreshed application with updated information, including any new questions and new colleges. Juniors may want to spend time organizing and entering their application materials into their Common App account, and should do so when it makes sense for them. 

    After August 1, Common App asks students to sign in and roll over their accounts for the new application cycle. Most answers to common questions will stay, and students may also choose to keep their college lists. However, everything in the My Colleges tab will be reset. We encourage students to save any responses to college-specific questions or writing supplement questions in separate documentation that they can access easily.
