If you have misplaced your Naviance registration code you must see your Guidance Counselor for the code or come to the College Office to reset your password. We expect ALL students to be registered on Naviance. It's the best way for you to research your colleges and universities.
College Office Files:
Seniors - the forms for your college office files are attached to this website AND are uploaded to your Naviance accounts. You must submit three short teacher references, a student profile, an autobiographical essay, a list of your senior classes, and an optional parent brag sheet. ALSO, continue to review the College Office Handbook that is also on this website and in your Naviance accounts. The handbook has important procedures about applying for college that you must know! If you still have questions, you can visit the college office at any time.
