Other Opportunities for High School Students


Every once in a while, the Counseling Department becomes aware of information or opportunities that may be useful for our students to know about, but they don't necessarily fall under any of our other headings.  

Below are some of these opportunities.  We hope you will find them useful.  

As always, please understand that we are not endorsing any of these opportunities nor can we guarantee the legitimacy of the websites.  Please use good judgment and consult with parents before contacting organizations and sharing your personal information.
