Local high school students will have the opportunity to get assistance to complete their college applications during the week of Nov. 14-18. Richmond Senior High School and Richmond Early College High School will participate in this event.
College Application Week is co-sponsored by College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC) and the Carolinas Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (CACRO)
The goal of the program is to get more students applying to North Carolina colleges early in their senior year. During this event, students may apply to any of North Carolina’s 58 community colleges, 36 independent colleges, and 16 state universities in which they are interested.
As part of the college access initiative, Richmond Senior High School and Richmond Early College will work with seniors throughout the week to complete and submit online at least one college application each using the career and college information and planning site, CFNC.org.
Richmond Senior High School Guidance Counselor Jewell Price coordinates the College Application Week at the school and expects more than 100 seniors to apply to college next week. Students will have access to the school’s media center computer lab on Nov. 14-17 from 3 to 5 p.m. The Career Information Center will also be available for students who are given permission to use the computer lab there.
For more detailed information about the activities planned by Richmond Senior High, students and families may contact Price by calling 997-9812, ext. 2046, or Karen McLean at 997-9812, ext. 2036.

Families of Richmond Early College students may contact Reed by calling 910-410-1923.
