Post Secondary Planning
In conjunction with the activities offered by your counselors in your Research / Executive Internship classes, you will find valuable information to help with your college plans on the sites listed below.
This site is being built by the U.S. Dept. of Ed. in collaboration with students. This site is intended to be the go-to source for information and resources about planning, preparing and paying for postsecondary education (such as 2- or 4-year colleges and universities, as well as vocational or career schools).
Most importantly, college.gov is intended to provide inspiration and hope to all students, and encourage them to consider and pursue a postsecondary education.
In building this site, we asked students what information was most useful as they look ahead toward college. Over time, this site will continue to evolve, and you can help influence that process by visiting our contact page to submit questions, suggestions and feedback.
