Junior

In eleventh grade, students begin in earnest the college application process. They meet weekly in small groups during the second semester of the year to address each step of the process through the Junior Seminar program. In this journey of self-discovery they gain confidence in their ability to make good choices as they familiarize themselves with the steps to college. Click here to view the Junior Seminar Agenda.
