GRADE 12 STUDENTS:  Have you applied yet for college?  If not, you should know that several local colleges open for online application on October 1st. Colleges operate on a “First Come – First Served” basis, so early application is very important. Applying early means you secure an earlier course registration date in June. Even if you plan to attend university it is a good idea to apply to one college this fall as a back up to your university application. Any questions, please see your counsellor.
