This event will take place at the Engineering Building Unit 1 at UC San Diego. This is an all-day conference held on the UC San Diego campus that celebrates women in S.T.E.M. and encourages females to pursue a S.T.E.M. education. This conference will consist of a Q and A panel with women in industry and academia, and various introductory-level technical workshops such as fundamentals of electrical engineering, signals processing, website development, and professional development. This conference is free to attend and open to any middle or high school students that identify as female, but they must sign-up for the event using the QR code on this flyer.


If your student received a D or an F in a core course, please complete and return a summer school application as soon as possible.  Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis and classes will fill up quickly.  Summer school will be held on June 11th - 29th from 9am - 1:45pm.  Students may make up one semester of one class.  Your student may have the application s/he received from a counselor.  Or, you can click here to print one.


Seniors who plan to attend Grossmont and/or Cuyamaca Community College in the fall may take advantage of this opportunity to receive priority registration at both colleges.  If you did not attend the application workshop and assessment tests offered on our campus, you MUST complete an online application at www.grossmont.edu and take the assessment tests at Grossmont College BEFORE the fieldtrip.  You must also return a permission slip to Krista Santoro in the Counseling Office.  


Many college summer programs have deadlines this month.  For more information on a variety of programs, please click on College Information on the left side of this page and then click on College Summer Programs.


While the CalGrant deadline has passed, all students should still complete the FAFSA to apply for federal financial aid, if they have not already done this.  Counselors shared important financial aid information with seniors in their Government/Economics classes earlier this school year.  Please click here for the presentation.  Please click here for some quick tips.
