NEWBERRY — In an effort to promote college awareness and access, Newberry High School will participate in College Application Month, a statewide initiative sponsored by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education and the South Carolina Department of Education for October.
Newberry High will host an event, College Application Day, to work with their senior class on Oct. 26 to complete and submit online at least one college application as a part of this college access initiative.
The goal of College Application Month is to provide a forum for all South Carolina seniors to complete and file college applications. While much of the focus of the month is geared toward first-generation college students and students who may not otherwise apply to college, this initiative also includes activities for all students, including freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors who have already applied to college.
Newberry High expects more than 150 seniors to participate with the help of volunteers from the Newberry County community.
For more information about Newberry High School’s College Application Day event, or if you are interested in being a volunteer, please contact Amanda Finley by calling the school at 321-2621.
