ROAR Time- Help with College Applications

Beginning in September, the counselors will be available every Wednesday during ROAR Time to help students with their college applications. Seniors who are not requested by any teachers during ROAR Time are invited to join us in the Counseling Office. Later in the year, we can also help with the FAFSA and scholarship applications during this time. If a student is requested by a teacher for ROAR Time, that is where they are required to be.

Counselor Presentations to Seniors

The counselors presented to all senior English classes in September. The presentations focused on post-high school planning. Students learned about college admissions, the college application process at WHS, letters of recommendation and more. View the 2019 PowerPoint Presentation shown to students.

PSEO students who do not have an English class at WHS will receive an email with a link to the PowerPoint. If you have any questions, please contact the Counseling Office at 651-425-4430.
