Fall is a busy time in the counseling office. We are delighted to host over 80 colleges and universities who visit and meet with our students. Students should check the college visit schedule on Naviance and plan to visit with the college admissions representatives. Seniors should be meeting with their counselors to check graduation progress and complete post high school planning.
In October, counselors presented to the FAST classes. Every freshman student should have received the 9th grade College Readiness Guide to share with parents. The focus on the presentation was on counseling resources, academic planning, and college readiness. Counselors will return to the FAST classes at the end of November to introduce Naviance and complete an academic plan. Naviance is a web-based resource designed especially for all students, parents, and counselors. Naviance helps in making important decisions about course work, career, and college planning. Counselors also use it to track and analyze student data. Naviance truly supports Smoky Hill’s mission of "Every Student College Ready". If you need assistance with Naviance, please contact your counselor.
