College Guidance

The College Guidance program equips students with a comprehensive approach to the college selection process.  This helps them understand the many steps involved, including infomation-gathering, timelines, items they will have to submit, the basics about costs, scholarship opprtunities and the financial aid process.  Students use Naviance, an online college and career readiness software, that provide students with college planning and career assessment tools.
