College Application Process

How simple or extensive your application process will be depends on the types of colleges on your final list. A lot of moving parts go into applying to college—tests, essays, recommendation letters, transcripts—and each element has a deadline attached. Make careful note of deadlines for each school you're applying to so you don't miss them!

Schedule Your Senior Meeting

Seniors, be sure to schedule your fall senior meeting with the counseling assistant. Meetings should be scheduled for before Thanksgiving break. Students who are applying early decision or early action should meet with their counselor before mid-September. At the meetings, counselors will recheck graduation requirements, address college application issues, and answer any career questions you may have. The Fall Senior Meeting presentation is posted on our BHS Counseling Events Website.
