Student Updates

 

  • Sophomores:
    • Counselors have met with almost all sophomores for a classroom guidance lesson on the Strengths Explorer in Naviance. Students are encouraged to discuss their results with parents.
  • Seniors:
    • Many students have already requested transcripts and have submitted college applications.  Students who have not yet submitted college applications but plan to apply by a college's December 1st deadline should do the following:
      • Request that your counselor send your transcript at least 2 weeks in advance of the college's deadline.  If you are applying with a December 1st deadline your transcript request should be submitted no later than November 16th.
      • Request ACT and/ or SAT scores be sent from the testing agency now.  
      • Request teacher letters of recommendation in Naviance as soon as possible.
      • Add colleges to the "Colleges I'm Applying To" list in Naviance (transcripts and letters of recommendation can't be sent to colleges if the colleges have not been added to this list).
      • Match Naviance and Common App accounts from the "Colleges I'm Applying To" page in Naviance.
