Concourse is your virtual guide.  Our easy-to-use smartphone app  connects you to a team of experienced university counselors that will help you navigate the college search process from start to finish. 

Year 10

This school year, focus on activities that interest you- athletics, the arts, publications, community service, leadership in clubs to clarify your interests and talents.  Course choices during these years will affect what you study in college and even affect your college admission, so working with Concourse to organize your schedule and plan extra-curricular activities and goals will get you off to a strong start. Colleges want to see well-angled students who show consistency, commitment, drive and leadership in their selected extra-curricular activities.

  • The Anatomy of the Resume
  • Types of Higher Education/Degrees
