College Admissions Process
Date: Tuesday, April 4th
Time: 6:00 p.m.
This presentation begins the conversation with high school juniors and their families about the college admission process. Topics discussed include: tips for searching and finding the ‘right’ school, special programs and options to consider when choosing a school, advice for college touring and ways to stand out to a college. Attendees will receive our 2016-2017 College Insider.
Mandatory Attendance at Drug & alcohol Presentations
Participation in extra-curricular activities such as Junior Prom, Senior Graduation Activities (banquet, project graduation etc.) and other activities deemed necessary by the administration REQUIRE a parent/guardian to attend a school sponsored Drug & Alcohol Awareness Presentation. Administration will provide a few options to meet this requirement. Parents with multiple high school students will need to attend one presentation every 4 years due to the changing of laws and information on the current drug & alcohol abuses and concerns.
Can't make a presentation? Have your student pick up a BLUE form from the Main or CTC Office. Watch the video "Chasing the Dragon" (link below), sign off on the blue form indicating you watched the video and return to Mrs. Knapp in the Main Office!
Enrollment open for 2017-2018 CTC PROGRAMS!
