College Information

At KCHS we’re proud of the fact that more than 98% of our students enroll in four-year college or university after graduation.  We also know that the process of selecting the right institution can be time consuming and confusing.

We recommend that students take time to visit colleges in which they are interested. Please refer to the calendar below to see what colleges are planning visits to Kennedy and to see dates for upcoming college open houses. In order to meet a college rep coming to Kennedy, please stop by the guidance office to obtain a pass for the period of their visit. Many reps are now visiting during Jr/Sr lunch as well, so be sure to stop by their table. For more information on college open houses, we recommend that students visit the individual college’s website for the open house schedule.
