The goal of the “I am College Bound” campaign is to provide New Hampshire high school students with the inspiration, information and planning support to pursue higher education goals. The Center for College Planning team especially encourages low-income students, their parents and their mentors to recognize that New Hampshire campuses and the U.S. Department of Education offer strong financial aid programs which enable eligible individuals to access financial assistance in paying for education beyond high school. To inform, engage and grow public awareness about financial aid programs, students are incentivized to share content with friends and peers within their networks through monthly promotions.

What's the June I Am College Bound Promo?


College Bound in 2020?

Rising high school seniors, how crazy does this sound? You are about to enter your fourth and final year of high school! When you started your freshman year, do you remember people saying how these four years would fly by and you thought they were exaggerating? You were just so anxious to start high school that you didn’t want to think about what came later. How about now? Do you believe it now? Your senior year is just around the corner. Maybe you have already started to think about college, but if you haven’t, that’s okay. Our team of college counselors encourage you to take a little time this summer to think about the college admissions process by:

  • Challenging yourself in the classroom! Whether you have signed up for electives or advanced courses, the classes you take in high school speak to your motivation and interest in learning. Class choices like dual enrollment, advanced placement, and college prep may open additional opportunities for you. Specific high school course requirements vary from college to college, but all colleges expect you to continue to challenge yourself through your senior year. If you have a certain type of school in mind, click here for more detailed information on possible admissions requirements.
  • Taking a campus tour. Nothing helps you explore all the possibilities that await you better than walking around a college campus and thinking “I could see myself here.” A campus tour allows you to immerse yourself in everything the college has to offer. Get a sense of what the campus is like – and remember to visit again in the fall to have lunch in the cafeteria, tour the first-year student residence halls, and perhaps sit in on a class or two! Register for a tour of your favorite campuses at the colleges’ admissions websites!
  • Participate in community service! Take some time this summer to pay it forward. Spending a little time doing something good for others not only makes you feel good, it may help you identify a potential career path or possible college major!

If you and your family would like assistance with the college admissions process, come meet with one of our experienced college counselors this summer. We’ll help you identify possible colleges to visit and share a college application timeline. Consider registering for one of our Summer Boot Camp programs at our Concord campus (sessions are filling up quickly!). Call us at 888.747.2382, ext. 119 today!
