College Counseling for Southland Students
Southland strives to ensure that all Southland students will be admitted to the colleges of their choice and will have the financial resources to make this college attendance a reality. We are achieving this goal. As of today’s date,100% of Southland’s graduating classes have been admitted to college, with more than $22 million in scholarships awarded to the Class of 2016.
Our process is personal and begins early in students' tenure at Southland. Please see some of the resources listed below, and watch for announcements from our College Counseling office about events and activities to help students and their parents through the process of college research, application, and attendance.
