Planning Guide

At school, I maintain a 40-page guide that I distribute annually to all juniors. It is comprehensive, but hopefully not cumbersome. It contains information about junior and senior years to help students prepare to apply to college or enter the workforce. Here are several of the highlights that will be most helpful to students in the post high school planning process.
