Private college experiences
We go to a college fair in Manhattan with our guidance counselor every year in fall!
In our junior year, our school provided college planning classes once a week to junior students, in order to help them prepare for college applications and give out college information.
Our college guidance counselor would help students register for SAT or ACT tests.
Our school also provides multiple AP classes for student who are interested in college level classes. (AP US. history, AP Calculus, AP Statistics, AP Chinese, AP literature, AP Biology, and AP Physics.)
Our school also provide SAT prep on Saturday for students who need help on SAT test.
Keep it up and make college dream real!
