December 2, 2017


Welcome back! We congratulate seniors on all the hard work that went into meeting the November 30 deadlines for UC and CSU applications. We also salute those who met December 1 deadlines for merit scholarship consideration at other institutions. Experience has shown that Catalina students can look forward to generous incentives to enroll at schools they apply to. Good news is already rolling in on the college admission and merit scholarship fronts, and we have no doubt that it will continue through the spring.


If your first college application due date is in January and you haven't recently met with your college counselor, please do so in the next two weeks, since the last day of school before Christmas break is December 15.
