Class of 2023 - Seniors
College Tour and Career Exploration Day 10/12/2022
To Students and Parents/Guardians/Caregivers of the Class of 2023:
On Wednesday, October 12th, Taunton High School is offering all seniors the opportunity to participate in a College Tour and Career Exploration Day. We encourage all 12th grade students to visit prospective colleges, technical/trade schools, and workplaces to gather information about post-secondary pursuits.
Tours should be scheduled in advance through the college’s website or by contacting the Admissions Office. We have compiled links to many local colleges and placed them in the Class of 2023 Guidance Google Classroom. In addition, THS is working directly with some local campuses to arrange special tours for THS students. Information about these tours will be posted in the Class of 2023 Guidance Google Classroom and sent in a separate email.
Click here for a helpful Campus Visit Checklist provided by the College Board.
Seniors who choose to participate in this opportunity will have their attendance recorded as a field trip/excused absence for the day.
Seniors who elect to attend school on the 12th will not attend their regular classes, but will report to the library to participate in alternative college and career planning activities.
Students or parents/guardians with questions about this program should contact their guidance counselor or Jenifer Andrews, College & Career Counselor, at 508-844-5857 or [email protected]. We hope that all seniors will take advantage of this opportunity to explore college campuses and workplaces!
