Secondary School Advising

INFO & Resources

The role of the Placement Office is to support families as they research, visit, apply to, and choose a high school for their child. Our goal is to provide families with the information they need to navigate the process and make the most informed decision about their child’s next educational environment.

Applying to Schools


 

All schools, with the exception of public schools, require that families complete an application. Technical and Agricultural schools are considered public, but do require an application. Some schools use a paper application, while others have their own online applications and others use a common application.

When you are researching and visiting schools, please make a point to learn each school’s application requirements and due dates.
