To help kick start the college application process, the William Floyd High School Counseling Center recently held its first-ever College Application Week, an initiative celebrated nationwide designed to provide high school seniors with the opportunity to receive assistance in completing their college applications to post-secondary schools (college or trade school). All high school counselors assisted students in preparation for early action and regular decision deadlines. Counselors assisted 112 different students, with a total of 192 visits from graduating seniors that week.
Additionally, the Counseling Center recently held its first on-site admissions event of the year, a yearly effort to bring post-secondary institutions in to meet with students to have their transcripts evaluated and discuss student goals and college offerings. At this event, several Long Island colleges including Farmingdale State, Long Island University (C.W. Post campus), St. Joseph’s College, Suffolk Community College and SUNY College at Old Westbury participated with some offering students on-the-spot acceptance along with more than $214,000 collectively in scholarships. Additional applications and scholarships are still under review or pending. This was the first on-site admissions event of the school year with Suffolk Community College coming back on December 10 and the large on-site admissions event scheduled for February 4, 2020.
