Take a College Visit with MTHS Guidance!

On Friday, October 26, 2018, the MTHS Guidance Department is taking interested juniors and seniors to visit Bradley University. This is not an attendance day for students because of parent-teacher conferences. The Guidance Department wanted to give students the opportunity to get more information about a four-year college and to take an official college visit. There is no fee for this event. The schedule of the day will be:

If you give your permission to attend the Bradley University campus visit, please complete the college visit permission form and have your child return it to the Guidance Office by October 22, 2018.  If your child needs to cancel, we need to know by October 24 so Bradley can cancel his/her lunch. Also, please have your child register for this tour on Bradley’s website using this link: https://apply.bradley.edu/register/expbuIV2018

Note: Parents may attend with their child; however, you must provide your own transportation and register using the same link. With this option, you may take the full tour which includes seeing specific departments and ends at 2:30 pm.  Do not turn in permission slip for this option.
