    Every fall the Brighton High School Counseling Center hosts more than a hundred representatives from colleges and universities all over the state of New York and beyond.  Our seniors and juniors can meet with the representatives at scheduled dates and times during the school day to ask questions and gather information about schools in which they have an interest in potentially attending. 

    This first contact can be very important because many of these reps will be involved in the processing of applications and final decisions regarding acceptances.  Our school community is proud of the "glowing" feedback the Counseling Office receives from the visiting representatives about our students.
