Parents/guardians are encouraged to discuss with their students the necessity to carefully plan their course of study for each year as well as to take time to plan their four-year course of study. This planning process should be related to the students’ desired next step after high school. For students who are planning to continue schooling after high school completion, it is important to explore career options, as different careers may require a certain sequence of courses.
The Peoria Notre Dame High School Counseling Center personnel are here to assist students and families with planning their students’ present course of study and exploring the four-year plan of study. It is important for students and parents/guardians to gather information regarding college/university entrance requirements early so that the students are appropriately prepared to make application to the post-secondary school of their choice in a timely manner. Admissions dates vary by college/university.
