College Planning

King’s High School students are in good hands. College planning is a deliberate part of everyday life, whether up front or behind the scenes. By choosing King’s High School, students will be ready for college upon graduation. King’s requirements go beyond state standards in almost all subject areas and our student’s graduate having met the requirements for most colleges and universities. Students are encouraged to excel beyond even these rigorous requirements, adding additional math, science and foreign language. Individual support and planning are a common part of daily high school life, along with the use of the college search and planning tool Naviance. College visits and fairs on the campus allow students firsthand experience with admissions advisors and recruiters. King’s is committed to guiding students as they navigate the best-fit post-high school experience.
