Guidance Department Hosting College Process Night Wed 12/9

Please join the Guidance Department on Wednesday, December 9th at 6:30 pm in the Milton High Library where we will cover the major topics needed to survive the college process. We will hold mini sessions for the following topics:
  • The New SAT-How is it different than the 'old' SAT and what should my child expect on this exam; should my child take the SAT or ACT 
  • NAVIANCE-We will show you the tools that you and you child can use to help make thoughtful decisions on colleges to attend or possible majors
  • Financial Aid FAQ
  • NCAA-if my child is going to play sports in college what should we be doing to help him/her obtain that goal
Each session will last about 20 minutes and groups will rotate to the different stations over the course of the hour. 

This is the first time we are holding this type of interactive night. We hope you will join us. Students are welcome to attend along with their parents/guardians. Parents for students in grades 9-12 are all welcome to attend. It is never too early to start to understand the post-secondary process.
