College Admissions Panel

On January 24th at 7pm in the Middle School Cafeteria, we will be hosting a college panel. 

Dale Taylor, from Siena College, will be speaking about Making the College Visit Count, Sarah Barrancotta, from SUNY Oneonta, will be giving an overview of the SUNY System, and Julio Torres, from Marist College, will speaking about Highly Selective College Admissions.  Please join us for this very informative night.


Counselors will be conducting classroom presentations this month to begin the career education portion of our counseling program with the 10th grade. Students will be exploring careers by completing career inventories and information will be shared re upcoming career-related activities (Career Fair; BOCES College& Career Fair)


Junior interviews, the process where students, and their parents, meet individually with their school counselors to discuss post-secondary plans, generally takes place during the spring semester of junior year. Please call the Counseling Office (x2021) to make an appointment.


The end of the 1st semester is January 25 and grades are posted on the portal on January 30.  Seniors should check their mid-year grades right away and let us know if there is any issue with their report card.  We will be sending the mid-year grades to each college to which a student has applied during the first week in February.

Please remember to let your counselors know if you have heard back from any colleges.
