Huntington Beach Union High School District

College application deadlines are approaching, HBUHSD students are prepared

Ocean View High School and Westminster High School recently hosted College Application Day events!
At OVHS, seniors were welcomed into the computer lab with a red carpet and cheers of encouragement from their peers, the cheer team, and OVHS administrators. There were representatives present from local community colleges and cal states, like Golden West, Orange Coast, and Cal State Fullerton. 
 
Westminster High School hosted a similar event to get students excited for their next steps after high school graduation. The Sylvia Mendez Learning Center was open all day for seniors to work on their college applications and get their questions answered from the College and Career Specialists. WHS food service staff celebrated the day with a barbeque for students at lunch and encouraged all staff to wear their college t-shirts. 
 
HBUHSD encourages all of our students to plan for their futures, as early as their freshman year of high school. Students can make appointments with their assigned Guidance Specialists, their school's College and Career Specialist, and can even lean on their teachers for support. This process can feel laborious and complicated, however, our students have many resources to help them through this transition. 
 
For additional help, all HBUHSD students have access to PAPER. Not only does PAPER offer free, one to one, 24/7 tutoring in all academic subjects, but their tutors also help students with writing college application essays. Whether a student is just getting started, or nearly finished, they are always available.
