Timeline for College Planning

The college planning process begins in the fall of the freshman year at La Jolla High. It starts with the courses you take, activities you chose and interests you pursue.

All students come to the college process in their own time, although there are steps that all students should take at various junctures. If you miss a step, you can certainly catch up, but if you have the information in advance, it makes planning simpler.


The goal here is to provide information to students and families to make the college search and application process simpler, controllable and less stressful.

If you take time to do a little planning and research, and complete small tasks along the way, the process should be manageable and hopefully fun!

We are the Vikings, and we are on the voyage of discovery. Take a look at the grade-specific suggestions and enjoy the ride!
