Senior Advisement

Seniors

Important Information for Seniors:

As you begin your senior year, we strongly encourage you to visit Naviance to research and plan for college, explore careers and to find scholarships. 

For students planning to attend college, Naviance Student will also be used to request and process transcripts, letters of recommendation, and other college application documents. After doing your research, and compiling a list of colleges you are applying to in Naviance, you will need to become familiar with the different platforms colleges use to have students apply. These platforms include:

 

If you are using Common Application to apply to college, you will need to:

  1. Create your Common App account.

  2. Match your Common App account to Naviance. This can only be done on or after August 1st.

  3. Do not request counselor or teacher recommendations until after you match your accounts on or after August 1st. Requesting recommendations before August 1st will create issues with processing.

 

Please watch the below videos in preparation for the college application process:

 

To help guide you with the college application process, use the provided College Application Timeline and Checklist. We hope that you will find these resources helpful.

If you are interested in going into the workforce, military, or desire to explore other options outside of college, please contact your assigned counselor. We are eager to help you develop a plan!

  • Using Naviance

Most of what you will do to apply for college, will be done through Naviance. It is very important that before you start applying for colleges, you set up your Naviance account and match your Common App account to your Naviance Account. Click here for our Naviance page.

All seniors are required to complete a senior information sheet and submit it to your counselor by September 9, 2022. Your teachers and counselors will use this information to write a letter of recommendation on your behalf. Please include all activities you have been involved in from 9th - 12th grade. This can include outside activities in the community and any service projects. The more information that you provide, the better your letter will be! This is your chance to brag about yourself. 

 

Download the Microsoft Word document and make sure to do a save as and rename it with your name. Add your information and then email it to your counselor.
