College and Career Readiness: What Seniors Should Know Before They Graduate.

Senior year is both an exciting and somewhat daunting time all at once. To help seniors and their parents/guardians to navigate a few aspects to senior year, the high school counselors are creating a brief video to act as a guide. It will be available in November. Please view this video as well as chat with your senior student regarding this information as it was presented in advisement. Seniors also received a packet of helpful information as well. This information would also be great to review. Lastly, we’ve created a College and Career Readiness resource site. Please follow this link to see a variety of resources we’ve pulled together for you. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your son/daughter’s high school counselor.
