College Career Center (CCC)
I am here to help you with College Applications, ACT Registration and ACT Test Prep, Scholarships, and Financial Aid (FAFSA). I hope you will visit this page frequently for future college visits at East High, and college updates which include programs and campus events. Most importantly, I hope that you will come to the CCC in Library Room 3. I look forward to seeing you! If you need to email me, just click on my name under Contact Us and follow us on Twitter.
Our twitter is @BlueAcesCareer. I pass on scholarships, both national and local, college visits to East, college events, registration links, and important deadlines you don't want to miss. I also include ACT Registration information and deadlines. I never follow students. This is a resource just for you and as of now, the best way that I have to communicate important events to you.
To register for college fairs, register at:https://www.gotocollegefairs.com/ . By pre-registering, when you attend the Future's Fair or Wichita College Fair, just show the code on your phone and colleges can take your sign up information- no more filling out cards by hand for each college that interests you.
