Senior year is too late. The time to start thinking about college and planning for scholarships is now, so let’s get going! In this class you will explore college research methods; scholarship application planning tools; portfolio preparation techniques; how to build relationships with your college reps, and more. You will also participate in a group critique and experience mock portfolio reviews. This class is specifically for high school juniors and highly-motivated sophomores.
