Idaho College Application Week is used as an opportunity for all seniors to apply for college during the school day. This year, College Week was from October 31, to November 4. The goal of College Week is to prevent students to falling behind during the application process.

Janalee Hope is the Jerome High School College Week coordinator. She is also a college mentor. She is in charge of scheduling and preparing or the event. Hope goes into the classrooms to help with any questions that students might have.

“It (ICAW) is an organized way to help all our students get excited for college,” said Hope.

Senior, Cristina Pulido is glad that they have College Week.

“If they wouldn’t have been telling me to apply, I probably wouldn’t have applied,” said Pulido.

This is Jerome’s third year participating in Idaho College Application Week. This year, over 200 students will be taking a part in the application process.

“We have had a great success with the program,” said Hope.

College Application Week has grown successful over the past years. Last year, 97% of seniors in Jerome applied for at least one college. In 2013, 56% of Jerome seniors participated. In 2014, 37% of the senior class in Jerome applied.

This year, 97 schools, including Jerome High School, are participating in Idaho College Application Week. In 2013, only 21 Idaho high schools were involved. Slowly the numbers started going up. In 2014, 41 schools participated, and 59 schools took part in it during 2015.
