College Bulletins for 2016-17:
College Bulletins are updated throughout the school year, and are a supplement to the HSAS     college application procedures. The college bulletins contain detailed information to keep the     students on track with the college process.



College Visits
The list of college visits is updated regularly September – November on the college bulletin board outside of Room 117.

Here is a list of great questions to ask colleges when visiting, or when representativs are visiting our school

College Fly-Ins
Colleges offer students opportunities to visit them – often for free. These opportunities are called “College Fly-Ins.” Two links below offer the most comprehensive list available at this time. Please review the information to see if any colleges offer visits you may be interested in. Many are called "multicultural" programs, and each has different criterion. If you are interested in visiting a particular college, please look at the college link to see if there is a program that you may qualify for.
