College and Career Updates


Summer Enrichment Opportunities
We encourage your daughter to pursue her intellectual interests or personal
passions this summer by participating in a summer program, volunteering,
working, or interning. We have a curated list of summer opportunities on
Schoology in the Resources folder. Many free or low-cost programs exist and
these programs are often viewed as more impressive than "pay to play"
programs. Now is the time to explore these options and apply.

Our Calendar is now online!
We update our online  College and Career calendar  every week with college events happening on-campus and throughout the Bay Area.  We post annual parent information nights and in-class student programs too.  Bookmark our calendar  and stay in the know. Check out the calendar here
