Workshop - "Finalizing Your College List"

Mrs. Takahashi will be holding a workshop on Thursday, September 1, from 1:30 - 2:15 in the library, on the topic of finalizing your college list. Learn tips for researching the potential colleges on your list, or discover ways to find other colleges that match your goals. Learn how many is too many, and how to pare down your list.  This workshop will be offered more than once.  Keep checking the C&CC website for more workshop information.

“College is a match to be made, not a prize to be won.”

Visit the College and Career Center to search for your perfect match.

Visit Colleges.  We strongly recommend that students visit some college campuses before they complete their college lists. There are a wide variety of colleges within a few hours of San Jose, so you can easily visit them on a day trip. There is a pocket guide for choosing colleges available in the C&CC.

The New Coalition Application


Beginning in July, there will be a brand new way for students to apply to certain colleges.  Over 90 colleges have joined the Coalition for Access, Affordability and Success. The good news is that most of the schools in the Coalition will continue to accept the Common Application.  The Common Application has been around for over 40 years and integrates seamlessly with Family Connection, making it easy for your Counselor to send and track supporting documents.  Almost 700 colleges accept the Common Application, including a few new schools next year (Indiana University, University of Wisconsin-Madison and Baylor University).  Given our familiarity with the Common Application and the ease with which it enables us to support your applications, we are recommending that you use the Common Application whenever possible.

There are two schools ( University of Florida and University of Maryland) that will be using ONLY the Coalition application, which may require responses to different essay prompts.
