College Application Day


Throughout August-December, high schools across the state will host College Application Day events to assist students with the college application process. The goal of College Application Month is to provide a forum for all South Carolina seniors to complete and file college applications.


The College Application Month Initiative comes at a critical time in our state’s history.  Overwhelming evidence reveals that higher levels of education lead to greater prosperity and competitiveness in the knowledge economy.  However, South Carolina is well short of the national average and behind the national leaders in the proportion of adults who hold graduate/professional and baccalaureate degrees.  College Application Month is designed to expand statewide college access and awareness for all students in South Carolina.


Burke High School will be hosting our College Application Day on Friday, October 11, 2019 from 9:00-1:00. We will have various college representatives, School Counselors and volunteers present to assist our seniors in applying to college. Prior to the event, students are encouraged to sign up for College Application Day in our School Counseling Department lobby. To streamline the application process, students participating in College Application are encouraged to know their Social Security Number.
