College Explorations


*Students have already been selected for this Project Week after having gone through an application process. If you are unsure if you have been selected, please reach out to the College Counseling department.

Participants will spend five days visiting colleges and universities in New England. Visits to each campus will include a guided tour, admission and information session, and the opportunity to meet with Overlake alumni who are currently attending each school. 

This Project Week experience is limited to current 10th and 11th grade students at Overlake.

Special Considerations

Students who have been selected for this Project Week should not fill out the preference form as they have already committed to this Project Week. 

This is for 10th and 11th grade students. 

Overlake requires that on a day to be specified before departure, Overlake will administer a COVID test to all participants and leaders. To participate in the Project Week, the test must be negative, and students must be symptom-free from any illness to leave on a trip. 

Participants must be willing to follow King County and destination travel COVID guidelines.  If a participant should become COVID positive during the trip, the student will be isolated, and the student’s family will be required to pick up the student within 36 hours at their current location.  The family will bear all the costs associated with any travel to pick up their student and any costs for isolation or return travel. 

By selecting the above project, you and your family are accepting the financial responsibility for the cost of the projects.  This includes any unrecoverable expenses incurred if Overlake, or any federal, state or local government forces cancelation of the project, or if you or your family decide not to attend, or your student becomes COVID positive and needs to be isolated.
