MCS Guidance Office

Senior Interviews


Senior parents are encouraged to attend their child's senior interview during the month of September. During this meeting, we will discuss your child's transcript, GPA, high school credits, and talk about plans for after graduation.  We will look at the college admissions & financial aid process, along with exploring career paths.  I look forward in working with you and your senior on this amazing milestone!
