College & Career Center
Welcome to the Northeast Magnet College and Career Center. I’m Ms. Henderson, and this is the place to find all things related to planning for your life after high school. While, admittedly, a lot of my time is spent helping the upperclassmen get their lives in order, I am available to work with ALL of the students at NEM.
Please reach out if you have questions about exploring career options, community service, or job opportunities, preparing & registering for the ACT, figuring out which college major best aligns with your interests, scholarships and financial aid.
I will also be posting information here about upcoming college recruiter virtual visits, various announcements about colleges & career opportunities, as well as updating local/community scholarship information.
Follow this link to an interactive page that will share some of the resources available to you!
There are 4 ACT testing dates scheduled for October!
- Saturday, October 10
- Saturday, October 17
- Saturday, October 24 (offered at NEM)
- Sunday, October 25
The deadline to sign up for any of these tests is Friday, September 25th.
**Many seniors will plan to retest in October in hopes of raising their score a few points to increase scholarship eligibility.
Due to Covid-19, testing sites have had to reduce capacity and there have been a few sites that have opted to not hold tests this fall but they may still show up as sites that are offering the test.
**BE SURE TO CHECK THE ADMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS OF THE COLLEGES YOU'RE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING. MANY ARE MAKING CHANGES, TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION THE DIFFICULTY IN BEING ABLE TO REGISTER FOR AN ACT.**
