College Counseling Program Overview
Presentation High School’s College Counseling Program consists of individual meetings, mentoring sessions, workshops, college fairs, and parent events to guide students and families through the college planning and application process. Students begin meeting with their college counselor in their sophomore year.
The College Counseling Office is a safe space where students have the opportunity to collaborate, meet one-on-one with their college counselor, and access college planning resources. The space is also used to host over 100 college representatives visits each fall.
Naviance is the online platform used by Presentation High School students to research colleges, store test score information, build their college list, and access the fall college visit calendar. Students and parents get access to their Naviance accounts in the sophomore year. Colleges do not have access to a student’s Naviance account. Naviance is also used by college counselors to send important supporting documents to colleges in a student’s senior year.
Schoology is a virtual learning environment where students can access the college counseling mentoring calendar as well as college planning related resources throughout freshman through senior year. Students also have access to the annual college visit calendar and will receive scholarship, internship, and important reminders from the college counselors through Schoology.
The College Counseling Department communicates with families individually and through the weekly Parent Bulletin sent every Friday, in addition to a monthly College Counseling Newsletter sent via email.
