College Representative Visits

We have many college reps. visiting our school during SNAP throughout the school year. Take advantage of these opportunities to find out about the schools that you may wish to attend. The schedule for visits is posted on the Career Center bulletin board. The schedule will also be announced on the daily announcements on KBNG.

Two days for college visits are allowed each year during the 11th and 12th grade. College visit forms are available in the Guidance Office. Students may utilize fall break and other vacation days for college visits beyond the two school days. We also encourage students to visit during the summer. If you are interested in visiting a college campus you can call the college admission office to schedule a visit with a college. College visits are encouraged. A student and their family have much more information to make a decision when two or more colleges are visited.
