8th Graders - students filled out surveys with Kristin, our counselor, and then determined their skill sets and interests.

Additionally, they researched degrees and college choices, requirements, and course work and created brochures in Word from a template indicating their college choice, why, concerns, etc. Those hard copies are with the counselor.
