Dear Senior Students and Parents:

I want to thank you for allowing me to serve Rosemont High School as your student’s counselor over the past three years.

Start Early, Finish Strong!

Fall Semester

Keep studying!
You want to avoid “senioritis” – a drop in motivation and, consequently, grades, that is sometimes experienced by seniors.

Talk to your counselor about possibilities for concurrent enrollment (taking college-credit courses while you’re still in high school).

Save your money!
It’s a good idea to start planning for those unexpected costs of college.College Savings Calculator
