College Resources for Students and Parents
The Guidance Department meets with all seniors periodically throughout the year to distribute important information regarding the application process, the college essay, and the requirements and deadlines for the college admissions process.
The Guidance Department utilizes Naviance, an electronic reporting system linked with colleges and universities. Each senior and parent/guardian has a Naviance account which they can utilize for college research. The guidance office will use Naviance to send transcripts and recommendation letters for student’s college applications.
