11th Grade Students Prepare for College

Junior Planning Conferences Bellport Guidance Department Spring 2018 thumbnail92980
On Monday, March 26th, over 100 11th grade students and their parents packed the Bellport High School auditorium to learn about the college search and admission process. The Bellport High School Guidance Department presented to families the fundamental steps students and parents must take to be successful in finding colleges that are the right “fit.” The counselors reviewed available college search technology and resources, SAT and ACT exam dates, the application process, and the financial aid process. This presentation is the first in a series of opportunities for our current 11th grade students and parents to learn about the college admission and post-secondary planning process. Parents of 11th grade students are encouraged to call the Bellport High School Guidance Department to schedule their individual Junior Planning Conference with their counselor. Bellport High School’s college and career readiness programs continue in the fall of 2018, when counselors will conduct classroom presentations, Common Application workshops, and present details on the financial aid process. If you have questions about post-secondary planning or would like to schedule your child’s Junior Planning Conference, please contact your child’s counselor at 631-730-1607/1608.
