When students enter high school, and attend their new student orientations, they are continuously told that if you are thinking about college, preparation begins today! As much as that message is told, many students tend to ignore the warnings and wait to begin considering their plans after high school. Over the years, it has been apparent that many students do not start preparing their plans for life after high school until their Senior year. Senior year is filled with so many deadlines and tasks, that students tend to feel overwhelmed and stressed when it comes to the college planning process. To make an attempt to decrease anxiety and educate about various post-secondary options, the WELL is beginning a program entitled LEAP, Jr. In LEAP Jr, students will be able to attend college fairs, workshops from the College Foundation and Triangle Community Foundation, and have hands on experiences with current college students and develop a plan that will be the foundation of their decision processes as they progress into their senior year. Staff will go over their unofficial transcripts and show them where they are regarding their collegiate options and meeting requirements for admission. Our hope is that students will gain the necessary tools and knowledge and are able to move forward comfortably and lacking stress. If interested in joining LEAP Jr., complete the following form https://goo.gl/forms/0uu1Yr4iWJNjBzTD3. The first meeting is scheduled for February 11th at 3:15pm!
