  • College Planning - March 28, 2019

    On Thursday, March 28th beginning at 5:00 pm West High will be hosting a series of events for students and parents trying to determine their plans after high school. 

    Beginning at 5:00 pm the Iowa College Access Network will have a college planning presentation in the West High School Cafeteria.  

    From 6:00-7:30 pm in the new South Gym we will host a College Fair with over 60 colleges from across the state of Iowa and the midwest.

    Beginning at 7:00 pm in the Cafeteria there will be a Selective College Planning presentation in the West High Cafeteria.  As in year's past Adam Ingersoll, co-founder of Compass Education Group will present to students and parents so that they can be well-versed in what it takes to be admitted to a selective college after high school.  For more information about Adam's presentation please check the link here.
