College & Career Planning

College Ahead

Welcome to the Golden Eagle College Advising Page! Here you will find links to resources for college applications, scholarships, and career planning.

The goal of our college and career advising at Golden Eagle is to help you figure out where you want to go after graduation, and then create a plan to get you there, whether you choose to go to community college, university, into the military or directly into the job market.

If you would like help with your college and career planning, or if you have questions regarding the college admission or financial aid application process, please contact the school's academic counselor at alana@gecs.org
