College Resources 

Students and Parents,
On this page you will find a variety of information and resources that will help you as you plan for life after high school.  Some of these materials have been produced by our own Kentwood Public Schools staff; however, some are links to other organizations and their websites.  Kentwood Public Schools does not have control over the content on those sites but as of the date we put them on our webpage, we believe they contain useful information for our students.  As always, please contact the Guidance Department if you have questions.
