Preparing for college requires a focused effort that begins four years before that celebrated high school graduation date. As they start high school, students who involve themselves in their school and community, explore and follow their interests, take classes that challenge them and support their goals, build relationships with their teacher mentors, and volunteer for causes they feel passionate about are building a foundation for college acceptance. Staying the course each year with these college timeline tasks takes organization and commitment. And Fusion’s Post-Secondary Counselors are here to help – college prep is a key part of the support we provide!
The Post Secondary Counselor (PSC) relationship is truly an essential part of the high school journey. Our focus is to assist students with the college prep timeline tasks and move them toward their goals. Working with your Fusion PSC, students can explore careers, research and connect to best-fit colleges, evaluate testing options, build a robust resume, plan productive summers, and finalize plans for college admissions. Start each year off by scheduling a 30-minute consultation with your PSC by finding them here. Utilizing us as a resource can help students stay focused, informed, and equipped throughout the college prep process. We hope you find these timelines useful! They include Fusion-specific language (lead teacher, Director of Student Development, etc.) since I use them with my Fusion students, but they are a good guideline for all.
