Tips for Choosing a College

Option  1 : Check out our Virtual College Rep Visits

This year, our college reps are not able to visit in person due to the pandemic. Below are links to view short presentations from colleges that typically visit West Perry. More will be added as they are received!

If you are interested in learning more about a particular school, please visit their website. Most schools are offering virtual meetings with interested students, virtual Open Houses, and sometimes face-to-face college visits and tours.
