Tuesday November 9th was Apply to College Day at Baldwin High School.
32 seniors stopped by the BHS Media Center to apply for college, and over 40 applications were submitted to Georgia Colleges. Volunteers from Communities in Schools, Georgia College, Georgia Military College and Central GA Technical College were available to assist students with applications and to encourage them with future plans.
Baldwin High School was recently selected to participate in the Georgia Apply to College program, an annual event sponsored by Georgia Student Finance Commission and supported by Communities in Schools, the Georgia Department of Education, the Georgia Independent College Association, the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education, the Technical College System of Georgia, and the University System of Georgia. During the Georgia Apply to College event, seniors will receive hands-on assistance from volunteers, several of whom are from local colleges and universities, businesses and community organizations, as they navigate the college application process. The goal is for each senior to successfully complete at least one college admission application.
