October 3rd thru 15th 2022

College Application Week is celebrated across the country as a time to encourage and support students in applying to college. During this week, Seniors are able to submit one application to an in state school with the application fee being either waived or deferred.

At BCHS, we celebrate College Application Week by having Seniors fill out and submit a college application during their English classes. This way, they have complete guidance and support in filling out their application. We also encourage discussions to take place between teachers and students in class at all grade levels during the week about going to college. This helps students think about what they want to do after high school, and begin having questions answered about the college experience by people who have been there (teachers). Teachers create and hang signs in their rooms about the colleges they attended as a way to encourage curiosity and questions.

Today marks the start of Montana College Application Week, where students can apply to Montana State University for FREE! Montana College Application Week goes from 
October 3rd - October 14th. We encourage students to get a jump-start on their college admission process by applying to MSU for FREE today! Our Montana students are what make MSU an exceptional campus community and incredible place to learn, and we can’t wait to see their applications come through our office. Although Montana College Application Week allows students to apply for free, we want you to know that our application for Montana Students is FREE all year long!

Students can fill out our simple application for admission that has no essays, no letters of recommendation, and no interviews TODAY to get moving on their college search process. Additionally, we will get back to them with an admission decision in roughly two weeks so they can start their senior year off on a high note.

Make sure  students include their self-reported GPA on their application in order to be considered for scholarships later this fall. More information is coming soon regarding scholarships for our Fall 2023 students. Students can also check out our New Student Checklist in order to stay on track for Fall 2023!
