Deciding on a college is a big decision. We want you to be confident that you have all the information you need.

The application gives our counselors insight into who you are and what you care about. Armed with that information, they are better able to help you make an informed decision. When you submit an application, you are not committing to a college; you are further exploring that college. It is through this process that we will determine if you qualify for one of our many generous academic scholarships as well as provide us with information that could lead to other institutional awards including athletic, fine arts, and other merit awards. Congratulations on taking this important step!
