COLLEGE PLANNING

After graduation, we want to make sure your next step is the right step for you.

Researching colleges and universities for post-secondary education can seem like an overwhelming task. Students and their families can start looking for schools as early as they would like. However, junior year is when families should start to focus their search.

Naviance Family Connection is a comprehensive online tool which enables students and parents to navigate the college and career planning process. The use of Naviance is important throughout a student’s high school career and becomes an integral part of the college planning process during junior and senior years.

On this page, you will find resources, recommended by our GM counselors, that will help start you on your path toward the post-secondary education that’s right for you. Our counselors also meet with students individually during the winter and spring of the junior year. Parents or guardians are welcome to be part of this conference. And our counselors are always willing to help out if you have questions about your next steps after graduation!
