Where to Start?

It can be overwhelming to know where and how to begin the college search, but the following pages should provide you with the information you need to begin to bring into focus your goals and reasons for wanting to attend college. Then, you can learn about the different types of colleges and research majors (which will lead you toward those career and life goals) and understand college admissions requirements. You will learn about different cool programs that exist, begin to create your list of schools that interest you, and ultimately narrow it down to the schools where you will apply.

Of course, your LJHS Counselors are available to answer questions and help guide you with programs and information. Since they are the ones who will write your college letters of recommendation (along with one or two teachers), it is good to get to know them.
