Class of 2017



Welcome to your senior year! This is the last push to graduation and preparation for college. This page will be a great reference for you to remember deadlines and/or to use as a resource.


How to Reach Your Counselor:

  • Naviance emails- Keep your email in Naviance up to date because I will be sending out a lot of information regarding deadlines and opportunities for you.
  • Counselor appointments- You can register for counselor appointments on the school website.
  • Emails- You can reach me at this email Please remember that I may take up to 48 hours to respond and will not be available on the weekends.
Successful Tips
  • Check emails regularly! Make sure your email in Naviance is updated. Counselors and colleges communicate to you through email.
  • Pass all senior classes! Any fails may affect your high school graduation and/or college admissions. Even if you have been accepted to a college, colleges may revoke your acceptance if you fail certain classes.
  • Scholarships- Keep applying for scholarships! College is expensive and every bit of money helps.
  • Activate and check your college portals regularly- After you apply for colleges, they will email you about portal credentials. Make sure to check it often because they will slowly post things that you need to submit to complete your application.  



We will be using Naviance for college paperwork. Please make sure to always update your Naviance account and to check it regularly. Attached are directions on how to request transcripts and/or teacher recommendations.


What We Use Naviance For:
