Lake Oconee Academy will have their first graduating class of Seniors in May of 2018! Many seniors aspire to attend to their dream college and feel confident in doing so. According to College Board,the summer before your senior year is the best time to start. Most students do the majority of their application work in the fall of their senior year. At LOA, many seniors feel confident in applying for college, but on the other hand many also feel the nervousness and doubt as well.

An interview with Samantha Cervantes, a senior at LOA, gave us insight as to how the college application experience felt like. Samantha says, “While filling out the application, I realized I had more options available than I thought.” She feels like she could’ve done more activities and gotten more involved in school but she’s happy with where she is. Her options are Georgia State University, Georgia College and State University, and University of Georgia. Her advice to all students is to be happy with what information you put in your college Application and to start taking SATs and ACT tests early. Also, enjoy high school while you can.
