Welcome to the LACES College Center!  
The college center is a space for students to gather information, resources and receive services to navigate the college application and exploration process.  We believe ALL students should have access to resources that lead to higher education and beyond... Our college center is supported by Mrs. Candice Mackey, College Counselor, along with two part-time College Advising Assistants, Maggie Scott, and Dr. Jenny  Forman. 
Additionally, we have 12th Grade College Peer Counselors (CPCs), who are trained, skilled and serve in a leadership role to assist other students with college preparation and the application process.  We are proud to offer a variety of services and assistance to serve students including individual counseling appointments, group presentations, workshops, school-wide events, many college rep visits, various college campus visits, evening events, dual college enrollment and more.   The college center is open during nutrition, lunch and after school to answer any questions.
