Fall is a busy time in the counseling office. During September, counselors presented in the freshmen FAST classes. The focus of the presentation was to introduce Naviance to all freshmen. Naviance is a web-based service designed especially for students, parents, and counselors. Naviance helps in making decisions about courses, colleges, and careers. Counselors also use it to track and analyze data about college and career plans. It provides up-to-date information specific to our school and our students’ needs. Naviance truly supports the goal of every student graduating being college and work ready. Freshmen also completed the Career Interest Profiler and investigated at least one career. Students can share their results with parents through their Naviance accounts. Counselors will return to FAST classes in November to help students complete their academic plan and set goals for high school and post-secondary.
The class of 2014 should be working on the college admissions process and post high school planning. Seniors should be meeting with their counselors to discuss graduation credit progress and post-graduation plans. Remember to continue to check Naviance for college visit schedules, scholarship information, dates and events.
