College Counseling

As part of educating the whole student, JACS aims to ensure its students are prepared for college and university life. This includes preparation for the ACT, taking the ACT, and the ability to pay for college through scholarships and other financed aid. Having an educational partner to encourage a student’s growth and abilities is important to his or her success.

ACT Prep

It’s never too early for a high school student to start preparing for the ACT. You can order ACT’s free publication, “Preparing for the ACT,” online under “Order Support Materials.”

Upcoming ACT dates for the 2019-2020 school year are listed below. Visit the ACT website to register for an upcoming test.

Senior forms and information

To ensure a successful transition to college, we compiled items that seniors will find helpful during their senior year as they apply for and gain acceptance into college.

Seniors who need a transcript for their college application can transcript request. Seniors wanting to visit a college must submit a college visit form to the counselor’s office.

If you need advice on sending a thank you note after meeting with a university or receiving a scholarship, then please review the thank you letter.
