BCHS College Corner

Do you have questions about college?

Which school is right for me?

Do I want to go to a four-year or a two-year college?

Should I take the ACT or SAT?

What does the application process look like?

How am I going to pay for college?


All of these are great questions that your College Adviser can help answer! If you are a senior and have not met with Ms. Scott, please schedule an appointment by clicking the link below:

During Winter Break I should...
