This summer, attend a two-day overnight program at Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY. During this program, you will work with RIT students and faculty using state-of-the-art facilities and technology. You can attend up to four academic workshops that include a variety of programs like Robotics, Game Design, Photography, Environmental Sustainability, Biomedical Engineering, Marketing and more! There are over 70 academic sessions to choose from.

A letter from the Counseling Office to our Seniors and Parents:
Welcome to your senior year! This is a very exciting and important time in your life. You will be making many big decisions regarding college, employment and/or the military. We are looking forward to helping you in any way that we can. In order to do so, we need to take care of some of housekeeping items. Most of you will be filling out applications of some sort and in order for the counseling office to send the required documents, we will need parent and student permission. These documents may include, but are not limited to: ACT, SAT, AP scores, transcripts, letters of recommendation and information requested by newspapers about our graduating seniors. Students will be provided with the Request for Records/Release of Information Form and there will be copies available online and in the counseling office. Please understand that we cannot process any applications until we have a form on file for each student.

If you have any questions, please call the counseling office at 659-8649. We are excited to embark on this journey with you! 

Mirjam Bauer and Lindsay Hammer
