Here is the information about COLLEGE VISITS from our Student Handbook:  

College Visits

Students are encouraged to visit college campuses on weekends or school holidays. However, if that cannot be arranged, students may be allowed to visit college campuses with pre-arranged permission of the school counselor AND a note signed by the student's parents. College visits cleared by parents in this manner are excused absences.

That means students must bring their school counselor a note from their parents that includes the name of the college and the date visiting at least 24 hours before the college visit.

                                               

The following colleges will have representatives in our School Counseling office.  If you want to meet with a college representative, simply email Renee at rkybat@lewiscentral.org, and she will send a call slip for you when the representative arrives.

 

The United States Marine Corps plans to set up by the cafeteria the first and third Wednesday of each month, while the United States Army plans to set up on the second and fourth Thursday of each month.  If you are interested in a Fast Forward! graduation plan of entering the military, you should take the time to introduce yourself and talk with these recruiters.

 

Seniors, these Fast Forward! Scholarship Opportunities are also available on our School Counseling Department webpages:  http://tinyurl.com/y8yxrt95
