Welcome to our MHA / FYOS College Guidance site. As applying to college is a long and often arduous process, we have designed this site to provide you with information and to link you to useful resources that will help you along the way. 

Each page has been created to provide you with specific details of different aspects of the college application process. The senior year calendar page is loaded with important dates and deadlines. The SAT vs ACT page offers a comparison of these two tests with links to the actual online registration sites. There is also information about SAT II tests and the schools that require them. The Popular Schools page links you directly to colleges you may be applying to so you can begin researching the college. The page also contains a link to the application. The Jewish Life on Campus page will give you important information about major Jewish organizations on campuses. The Israel Options page provides information for the year in Israel.

As this site is still under construction, please check back often for more information. If you have any immediate questions, please click here to email Mrs. Talya Tsuna, our college guidance counselor.
