Congratulations, High School Seniors!

Wow! Can you believe your senior year is here? As you plan for life after high school, the Center for College Planning is here to help! Our website is full of information to help you apply to college ‑ such as using the Common Application, writing your college essay, and developing the list of schools you will apply to.

Remember to check our event calendar to see when we will be presenting at your high school!


On July 19 at the White House “Beating the Odds” Summit, First Lady Michelle Obama called for high school and college age students to sign up with Up Next, which sends text‑based messages about topics like applying for college, filling out the FAFSA and paying back student loans after graduation.

You can sign up by texting “COLLEGE” to 44044, after which you will answer a series of short, onboarding questions to gather your information and tailor ongoing content for you. Sign up today!!
