College Visits

College Visit Forms:  Seniors are allowed 3 college visits to view colleges of their choice and ask questions of the college admission staff.  A form is available in the guidance office and must be filled out by teachers, student, and signed by parents and the guidance office.  This form must be given to the main office before the student can visit the college.  It counts as a day of attendance, but missed school work must be made up.  Juniors are allowed 2 college visits.
