In 80 high schools across the state, this week is College Application Week.
The idea is to encourage high school seniors to apply to at least one public or private college or university. So at the participating schools, seniors will be able to work with school staff and volunteers to fill out their paperwork.
“Helping our students go-on to college really is a group effort between the high schools, families and our public colleges and universities,” State Board of Education President Linda Clark said in a news release. “Each year, we have helped more and more students, and I anticipate that again this year, we will help thousands of Idaho students take that next step to pursue a higher education degree or certificate.”
This is the fifth year the State Board has sponsored College Application Week. During last year’s events, 8,716 seniors submitted 13,397 applications.
