College Searches


As many students and parents begin to explore finding a college, the process can be overwhelming. Fortunately, many websites can help individuals narrow down their college search. These websites allow individuals to enter information about prospective majors, preferred geographic region, school activities, size, cost, and many other factors to complete a college search. Please refer to the following links to help the college selection process. Most of our students will use Naviance to do a college search and create a college list. Other suggestions include:

Applications
Typically, students will apply to colleges online via the schools individual website or the Common Application. The Common Application is a one stop shop for hundreds of colleges and universities. Students can fill out one application and send it to multiple colleges on their college list, as long as the college is a Common Application member.
