At UASCS, we believe that college is for everyone. To assure that our students reach that goal, we strive to provide our students an individualized guidance support to produce the best match between our students’ interest and colleges. Such goal can be achieved through strong relationship between home and school.
One of the key components of college guidance at UASCS is to expose students to college environment through various college visits and guest speakers. College visits, hosting individual college representatives and guest speakers help our students expand their knowledge about necessary skills, requirements and available programs at local, regional and national colleges. UASCS' counseling department uses paperless college application tools; Naviance and Common App. for college applications.
As of summer of 2016, eligible UASCS high school will be able to take college credits from MVCC and SUNY ESF campuses. As of 2017 we will be adding Utica College Courses to our spectrum. Students will also take advantage of local area and SUNY Oswego summer internship opportunities based on their interest. The following services are the highlights of UASCS’ College Guidance Services:
