Take the next step toward a brighter future today. The process starts when you contact Your Guidance Office to request a no-obligation appointment for a student enrollment interview, which can be completed virtually. Prior to the meeting, please have your student complete the Student Enrollment form.
We ask that your student be present at the appointment, as we will need to interview him or her to ensure that our program is a good fit.
