About the College Center
Welcome to the College Center!
Project GRAD and YPI are housed in the College Center (B-105). The Center is open Monday-Thursday from 9m-5pm. The College Center provides a variety of resources for college and career planning. It is also a place where students and their families can come to obtain information on two and four year colleges and universities, testing and test preparation, financial aid and scholarships opportunities.
In collaboration with the academic counselors, we continue to work on building a comprehensive college-going culture for all students. In addition to scheduled appointments, students are welcome to come to the College Center during lunch or after school to utilize the resources, study, or eat lunch.
