WELCOME SENIORS - CLASS OF 2020
Thanks to a well attended Senior BOOTCAMP and 1st SENIOR & PARENT EVENING MEETING we are off to a great start. To keep the momentum going, Senior ROUNDTABLES begin on Wednesday, September 11 and are offered every Wednesday afternoon (from 4-6pm in the Seminar Room) through December 18th (except 9/25 & 11/27) where professional tutors and trained volunteers are on hand to help students one-on-one with essays and supplements. In addition, the entire College Counseling Team is available daily during Access for quick questions, check-ins, Naviance/Common App help, etc.
All seniors should schedule two individual parent/student meetings with college counseling - one in September, one in October/November. An application submission meeting may also be scheduled to assist students in submitting their first college application.
In the meantime, please make sure that your Naviance list of "colleges I am applying to" is accurate and that all deadlines are listed properly.
Remember, students (not AHS) are responsible for ordering ACT or SAT test scores to be sent to schools where you are applying. It can take up to two weeks for scores to arrive, so please plan accordingly. For example, students with November 1st deadlines should order scores no later than October 18th.
We look forward to staying in touch over the next several months.
