  • Parents of Juniors: Student-Counselor Meetings Begin Soon

    College counselors have scheduled three meetings with each junior. The first, scheduled via Outlook, will take place before Spring Break. Before the meeting your son should do the following:
    • He must complete his Naviance junior survey and the “Do What You Are” assessment at least 24 hours before his meeting.
    • If he is unable to attend his meeting, he must let his counselor know with as much advance notice as possible. If he misses his meeting without notice, he will be assigned Early School and required to wear a coat and tie.
    We recommend you ask your son about his appointment and help him stay on task with his assignments. If you have questions, contact his counselor.
