Counseling & Guidance

 

 

 

Naviance:

Naviance is a Counseling and Guidance website for students.  Each student has an account and has been assigned tasks to do.  Parents, encourage your student to show you their Naviance account. 

 

PSAT test date:  Wednesday, October 24th

Freshman will be taking the PSAT 8/9 and sophomores, and juniors will be taking the PSAT/NMSQT.  Each sophomore and junior student has received a study guide booklet and practice test.  There are no paper booklets for the PSAT 8/9, but there is an online version.  Students have been given links for the online booklet, fact sheet, and more information on their “College and Career” Google Classrooms.  Please encourage your student to be preparing for this test by reading over the booklet and taking the practice tests.  English and Math classes have been taking time to go over sample problems in preparation for these tests. 

Seniors should use this day off to visit a nearby college or two that they plan to apply for.
