East Central is pleased to announce its participation in the statewide College Knowledge Month which will be held during the month of October. The goal of College Knowledge Month is to provide an opportunity for all Minnesota high school seniors to complete and file college applications. While the focus is on helping all students, special attention should be given to first-generation, low-income, and other students who might face barriers in applying to college.
This is the 5th year EC has participated in this state initiative!
We will be hosting many activities throughout the month ranging from lunch time Career Activities, Financial Aid Informational Meetings, Career Inventories, which all lead up to our final full-day activity - Senior College Application Day. This day is geared towards all seniors applying for college. It is an exciting and successful day. Last year over 100 colleges were applied to by our students. Senior College Application Day will be Tuesday, October 25.
