College Tours

Each year, the College Advising office plans college tours for our high school students. These take place within the state of Florida. Visiting colleges and universities helps students gain insight about program offerings, campus life and housing. This experience greatly enhances their ability to apply for and select colleges that will fit their academic and personal goals.
