College Planning Seminar for Juniors
The guidance department will be hosting a College Planning Seminar for Juniors in the Littleton High School Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at 7 p.m.
Our presentation will focus on the college admission process and a timeline for juniors. An overview of the Naviance College Management System will also be presented on this evening. With most of the college admission process now completed through the Naviance system, it is important for students and parents to be knowledgeable. The many features available through Naviance will allow you to develop a systematic and organized college information database that is personal to your student.
Starting third term, we will be meeting with our students once a week during their study hall in a Junior Guidance Seminar. The information presented at the College Planning Seminar will be presented to students during the seminar. Topics will also include college searches, college visits, standardized testing, college application and essay requirements. Juniors that do not have a scheduled study hall will meet individually with their school counselors.
For those unable to attend this presentation, hand-outs will available in the Guidance office. We look forward to seeing you on the evening of January 10th at 7:00 p.m.
