College planning is at the forefront of an ICCS education. From the moment they step onto our campus as freshmen, our high school students are immersed in college preparation activities that continue and intensify through their senior year. The PSAT 8/9 test, which helps predict success on the ACT, is offered in the freshman year; sophomores and juniors have the opportunity to take the PSAT NMSQT, a preliminary test for the SAT. Topics ranging from the impact of social media to college fairs are presented at the beginning of the high school experience to challenge students to begin early college planning and to consider the opportunities that await young women. Our College Counseling Office provides ICCS juniors with intense college training that includes workshops in resume writing and mock admission interviews with college representatives. As students approach their senior year, our College Counseling Office walks them through all phases of the college process. Activities include application sessions with our Director of College Counseling and workshops on topics that include choosing a college major, selective college admission and financial aid.
