The Road to College: Student Blogger Series

For high school seniors everywhere, the last year of high school is a time filled with a myriad of experiences, expectations and emotions.

Feelings of promise and pervasive bouts of senioritis are usually accompanied by hope, nostalgia, fear, excitement, and pressure about the next step: college.

This year, four talented scholars from the Class of 2015 will give us an inside look into their journey on the road to college.

They’ll post stories on our blog from now until June about the ins and outs and the highs and lows of the college application process.

They’ll also share their thoughts about making history as members of the inaugural graduating class of New Visions Charter High Schools.

Meet Schaddai Sosa, Lisbel Hernandez, Guirny Occean and Kevin De Los Angeles.
