What's Happening

Welcome back to school! Mr. Allen and Mrs. Uliana will begin scheduling individual meetings with seniors during the second week of school to discuss college applications and post-high school plans. All transcript requests and teacher recommendation requests must be submitted through Naviance. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a specific appointment time with your counselor, please email your counselor or stop in at the Guidance Office and speak with Mrs. Vail.

Working papers can be obtained through the school district in which you reside.

Mrs. Vail keeps an updated list of scholarships for seniors in Naviance Family Connection.  Click on the colleges tab.  Scroll to scholarships & money, then click on scholarship list.  Most of them are local scholarships.

PSAT score reports were distributed to students in January. If your child provided an email address when they took the PSAT, they should have also received an email in mid-December with instructions for accessing their PSAT scores online at studentscores.collegeboard.org. If your student does not have a College Board account, or if their PSAT scores do not appear in their account, you may contact their school counselor to receive their access code.

 

Senior Information (Class of 2019)

Welcome to your final year of high school! 

Please complete the Senior Activities Survey in your Naviance account by Monday, September 3rd! This survey will enable your counselor to accurately list your clubs, sports, activities, and accomplishments on your transcript.

If you're not in the habit of checking your email daily, you should start doing so this year. Colleges and your school counselor will be sending emails with important information about your college and scholarship applications on a regular basis.

By now, you should have narrowed down your list of colleges to which you plan to apply. You still have time to explore your options, however. Many colleges will be scheduling visits to Notre Dame this fall, so keep an eye on the Guidance calendar and your Naviance account for the most recent news on college visits. If you see a college you're interested in, be sure to register to attend the visit!

Your school counselors will begin scheduling individual meetings with seniors after the first week of school, so be on the lookout for your pass in homeroom. If you have a pressing question or an issue that needs more immediate attention, please email your counselor or stop by the School Counseling Office so your appointment is made a priority.

 

Junior Information (Class of 2020)

Your Junior year is the time to focus on your academics, as these will be the most recent grades when you submit your college applications. Additionally, now is the time to begin exploring your college options in-depth. Log into your Naviance account regularly and keep an eye on the calendar on the Guidance website so that you're aware of the colleges that are coming to visit you here at Notre Dame. If you see a college that you're interested in, please be sure to register to attend the visit.

Sophomore Information (Class of 2021)

Sophomore year is the perfect time to begin exploring what careers you may be interested in after high school.

Naviance is an excellent resource for finding information on colleges and careers.

Freshman Information (Class of 2022)

Welcome to your first year of high school! We hope you have your best year yet!

The grades you earn this year can set the tone for the rest of your high school experience. When you apply to colleges as a senior, they will see the courses you took and the grades you earned as a freshman. Do your best, and don't be afraid to ask for help!
