2nd Junior & Parent Meeting feedback survey
WELCOME JUNIORS - Class of 2021
Junior year is a time to explore post-secondary options and begin to understand the exciting journey ahead.
All Juniors will take the College & Career Discovery Class this year which provides the fundamentals of self-knowledge, career exploration, and college knowledge so that students are prepared for this important time of life. Discovery Class also covers all things related to the college application process and timeline including the college essay, test prep, and financial aid.
Juniors are asked to schedule two Individual meetings with College Counseling - the first may be scheduled after Thanksgiving and the second during the second semester. When scheduling an appointment, students should book with their assigned College Counselor (generally the one who has taught/will teach your Discovery Class). If you are not currently in Discovery, please refer to the Counselor listed in Naviance (click on "About Me" and then "My Account"). Prior to your 1st Individual Meeting, both students and parents are asked to complete short intake surveys to provide our office with valuable information that will serve as a foundation for the meeting. Survey links: for Students, for Parents. An optional 3rd Individual Meeting may also be scheduled.
College Counseling also offers a series of grade-level evening Parent Meetings and morning Counselor Coffees as well as the College Application Case Study program on April 2nd. And, on April 8th we will circle-up the Juniors (rising Seniors) as a group to ensure that letters of recommendation have been requested from teachers and so that all are clear on their Summer Check List/Senior Bootcamp Homework.
Finally, Naviance is an online system that lets students research colleges, build college lists and eventually tracks your college application submissions. Parents may access their child's Naviance account. Please contact Susanne Morrison for your Naviance parent registration code.
We look forward to working with all of you.
