College and Career
When applying to college, students at HSLPS receive a lot of support from the college office, the College Success Center, and Peer Forward. All students at HSLPS are college bound. Meetings about college begin early in a student's Freshman year when Ms. Carey and Ms. Santos begin working with students to build a awareness about college and how to take action early in their high school career to help secure their future.
The College Office
Located in room 405, this office is where you can find Ms. Carey, our College Advisors and Ms. Santos, our Public Service coordinator. They work one-on-one or in groups to guide students through their college process. This office also provides a work space for students with computers available and access to other college resources.
Student Success Center
The Student Success Center provides college and career exploration and student leadership training. They put young people at the center of our dialogue to identify what they need to improve access to college. A group of youth leaders are trained to organize college awareness events.
A team of Juniors and Seniors plan campaigns to ensure seniors apply to a minimum of 3 colleges, complete financial aid forms early and make outreach to underclassmen to promote the college going process.
