Colleges and Naviance
Students- 
The summer is a great time to visit and look into colleges.  It costs nothing to visit and tour a college, and as the guidance department showed you all this past year, Naviance is a great tool to use to find colleges which will best fit you.  If you are on vacation this summer and pass by a college or are looking for something to do one day, go and visit a college!

In order to find out more information about what colleges may fit you and your interests, log into Naviance here (bookmark this page- you will use it throughout the rest of your high school career!):

Enjoy your summer, and we look forward to seeing you all next year!!!

Announcements
Beware of Scholarship Scams!!!
Before we leave for the summer, we wanted to make an important announcement:
It has come to the attention of the guidance department that a lot of students have been receiving letters and invitations to "exclusive" scholarship searches, college information and preparatory programs and organizations which offer other services to help students apply to and get jobs from colleges. In our experience, most of these programs are SCAMS!

Do not sign up for something which expects you to pay money without first asking your guidance counselor and understanding exactly what you are getting for your money.
Here are some important facts/tips:
  • No one can guarantee that you will receive a scholarship or money for college
  • Your college will have a career office to help you get a job after college
  • Most of the programs will not add any value to your college applications (the ones that do are usually directly affiliated with legitimate colleges)
  • Your guidance counselor can help you with the following (for free!):
    • Applying for college
    • Applying for financial aid and scholarships
    • Identifying colleges which would be a good fit for you
  • If you are unsure about a program, you can either contact your guidance counselor or do a quick google search of the program (you may even find a rating on Yelp.com).
Remember- if something seems too good to be true, it probably is!!
If you have any questions, please contact your guidance counselor.
Have a great summer!!
-Mrs. Dobro, Mrs. Granger and Mr. Shen
