Dear Cicero Prep Students and Families-
During this time, please stay safe and know that The Office of College Counseling at Cicero Prep will continue to guide you through the college admissions process. For current students in Grade 12–rest assured that we are all in this together. Universities are making accommodations due to school closures in Arizona and nationwide. For students in Grade 11 or below who are just beginning the college search process, your courses and testing schedule may be disrupted but these adjustments that have been required in this time of caution need not negatively affect your chances of admission. Please contact your College Counselor with any questions and to continue planning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For all students in high school, important college-related actions will be posted daily in Google Classroom through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
