- Students are assisted in career and college counseling to help them plan their futures from grades 9-12.
All 12th grade seniors will take a class which helps them apply for colleges and receive one-on-one counseling.
Introduction to College Counseling
Students meet with the college counselor and discuss plans for the future and interests. Documents and application materials are collected and filled out. The counselor will teach students how to apply to college and write the essays necessary for application.
Schedule for High School Grades
The college counselor will assist students in meeting application deadlines and take the tests necessary for acceptance. Typically, well ranked universities require SAT scores above 1300 and mid-ranked universities require 1100 points. Lower ranked colleges will require a score of 1000.
Courses for Senior Students
The counselor will review the student’s GPA and scores in core classes to see if the student is ready for graduation and application to colleges.
Some students wish to apply in the easiest way possible but universities are looking for students who are looking for a challenge. This includes taking challenging courses and writing a good application essay. Many high end universities require AP Courses, which TAIS offers and assists in.
TAIS will send transcripts to the universities the student is applying to.
