Crumbs for College was created by the Albert Lea High Schools counselors to help seniors with college planning. Counselors were available during all lunches in D200 to help with FAFSA, college applications and use of Naviance for transcript request forms.
The class of 2016 was given a survey in which they voiced the need for more guidance on the college journey. From there the decision was made to offer more help. Counselor Amy Lageson says their goal is to help students with things like college applications, scholarships and make themselves more accessible; especially, to students who don’t have anyone to help at home.
“I think this is important because a lot of students don’t have someone at home who’s in college,” Lageson said. “So we try to make ourselves available so that way they know who they can ask.”
October is College Knowledge Month and during the week of Oct. 23 through Oct. 27 was Free College Application Week for 37 Minnesota colleges. Counselor Sarah Fischer think it’s important for students to know about this opportunity for free applications because fees can pile up quickly with applications, ACT, and paying for college itself.
