It's A Plan: Senior Year Checklists

Senior year is fun. It's hectic. It's full of memories. And on top of everything that's happening at high school, it's the time when students add one more critical job to their often-full plate.

It is when students put their plan into motion for taking the next step in life: college.

“We saw students who had been avoiding doing their applications, all from the stellar student to the student who is academically struggling. They felt supported, cared about, and encouraged.”

— Site Coordinator

 

 

 

In 2014, 4,413 students applied to 187 colleges and universities in 35 states.

 

 

“The true impact will never be known. There is at least one person graduating because of College Application Week. They got their senior portfolio done because they saw the relevance of what was needed.”

— Site Coordinator

 

 

“Word's out to the junior class already. We have no choice but to continue hosting College Application Week. There might be a mutiny if we did not.”

— Site Coordinator

 

 

In 2014, 64% of students who participated in College Application Week will be first-generation college graduates.

 

 

“I wouldn't have applied without College Application Week. I couldn't have even done this at home!”

—Senior, Taft 7-12 High School

 

 

“College Application Week helped me apply for colleges I didn't even know I would like to attend.”

—Senior, Yoncalla High School

 

 

“CAW is so worth it. The kids were so incredibly happy and excited about college and I'm certain it'll ease my workload come spring time. It was a fun event for our entire community. We'll be back again next year for sure.”
