Congratulations Seniors!  You have made your final decision, but don't forget to notify all other colleges that accepted you that you will NOT be attending their school.  This assists them in managing their wait lists, so they may offer an acceptance to someone else who is patiently waiting.



Seniors - don't forget to fill out your Senior Survey on Naviance.  Chromebooks are available to use throughout the day for you to complete the survey.  If you aren't sure of your Naviance login we are happy to assist you.  Once your survey is complete you can get a free cookie!!

Exploring College Options is a special recruitment program sponsored by the undergraduate admissions offices of five of the country's leading universities: Duke UniversityGeorgetown UniversityHarvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Stanford University.  Several events are being held in the Los Angeles area this May.  At each event, representatives from the five universities will conduct brief slide presentations about their institution and answer your questions about the sometimes-mystifying world of college admissions.


You will learn what distinguishes one fine university from another, what competitive colleges look for in the selection process, and what you can do to enhance your college application.The programs start promptly at 7:00pm unless otherwise noted. We suggest arriving 15 to 20 minutes beforehand to complete the sign-in process and find a seat. Programs typically last one and a half hours. Please feel free to bring your parent or guardian to the program, and if you have a friend who you think might be interested, please direct him/her to this website for registration information.
