JUNIOR PARENT COLLEGE NIGHT

If you were unable to attend the Junior Parent College Night, here is a link to the presentation. In addition we have also included the SAT/ACT Prep Packet information which can be found here. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the College and Career Center at jswanson@glenbrook225.org or jklasen@glenbrook225.org.
 

COLLEGE APPLICATON DEADLINES

Seniors need to be aware of their College Application Deadlines. Turn in your Transcript Request Forms to the College & Career Center at least 10 school days before each deadline to give your Counselor time to process your request(s).
 

MIDYEAR REPORTS

If any of your colleges require a Midyear Report or ask to see your 7th Semester grades, you must complete a Midyear Transcript Request--available here and in the College & Career Center. Check the Common App Requirement Grid or the individual college websites to learn which colleges require a Midyear Report. Turn in completed forms to the College & Career Center. We expect that 7th-semester transcripts will be ready to submit to colleges by the end of January.
