Begin designing your path through high school.  What classes should you take?  What activities could you participate in?  What will your summers look like?  When and how can you start college visits?  What are your strengths and interests?

TRANSFER STUDENTS

I can work with students who are looking to:
1) Transfer from a community college to a four year college, or
2) Transfer from a four year college to another four year college that is a better fit (that's called a lateral transfer).
We will work together to analyze your situation, determine what you are looking for, and figure out how to transfer your credits to a college that is right for you!
Please contact me so that we can get started.
