Upcoming Events and Important Dates

College Visits to West

  • These will be in the cafeteria if during lunchtime and in E11 if during Academy Time. 

     

    Please sign up for ONLY the visits you are seriously considering using the bulletin board outside the cafeteria or the links below. You do not need to sign up for lunch visits as institutions will have tables in the lunchroom. 

     

    To attend an Academy Time visit, you must sign up at least 24 hours prior to their scheduled visit. Because a majority of colleges are test-optional and have minimum requirements of a 2.25 GPA OR a 21 ACT, our West High students must also have these minimums in order to sign up. Why? Because this small group time is during Academy Time you need to be on target for graduation and applying to these colleges. When a community college visits, you must be on track to graduate.

     

    Please also note that signing up to meet with these colleges does not guarantee that your teacher will allow you to miss a portion of their class. Your teacher will have final approval to release you from class on your requested visit with a college.
