The college guidance program is developmental and structured to provide the latest information about college admission to parents and students. This is accomplished through individual meetings, classroom guidance, parent programs and school mailings. The guidance department's goal is to match the abilities and aspirations of the individual student with the resources of a post-secondary school.
