College and Career Center Advisors:

Regular hours: 7:30 - 3:30 Monday - Thursday.  We also participate in staff meetings, college visits and conferences at which time the C&CC may be closed.  Students may drop in or email to schedule an appointment with either of us. 

 

Weekly Bulletin: SRVHS emails a weekly bulletin to parents every Friday.  Please review the C&CC section at the end of the bulletin for weekly updates, due dates, and important information relevant to C&CC events, college application information, scholarships, jobs, internship opportunities, and much more.  Recent versions are archived below.  

 

Parent Education Workshops: Throughout the year, Counseling, College and Career provide parent education workshops that coincide with student activities/education taking place during the school day through Counseling or the College and Career Center.  

 

Student workshops being run through the College and Career Center can be accessed through the student's Naviance account and are also publicized on school loop news as dates approach. Students may also sign up for individual appointments with us (often during access or during a non academic class period) by coming in to the C&CC to schedule an appointment and/or they may email us via school loop.

FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid is OPEN for seniors planning to attend college in Fall 2018! Complete this application and note deadlines which vary by college/university.  

 

SENIORS: Be sure to check your college/university portal(s) after submitting your application. Most schools will provide you with a unique link or log in portal for their school site to monitor your application status. On this portal, they will update you on items received and missing for admission purposes. Be sure your transcripts, test scores, recommendation letters, etc. are all in order and/or contact the admissions office if something is missing that you think should have been received. 

  • Be sure you have submitted your MID YEAR TRANSCRIPT request to Mrs. Murray (Registrar-Counseling Dept)  in order to have your first semester grades sent to colleges (if they require it).  CSU's and UC's do not (unless you are emailed by them with that request!).  See School loop for detailed instructions regarding requesting Mid Year Transcripts to be sent. 

 

Our District office has a new department to support "College & Career Readiness" for our students.  
Mission:  All SRVUSD students should graduate from high school ready for college, career, and life. They should be prepared to pursue the future of their choosing.  Students should possess the skills and dispositions necessary to be successful in charting their postsecondary path. Many of the skills a SRVUSD graduate has are obtained through academics. The skills most demanded by colleges and employers are, by design, inherent in rigorous K–12 expectations – the ability of students to communicate effectively (both verbally and in written communications), to solve problems, to think critically and develop informed arguments, and to analyze information and data. Collaborating, communicating and presenting information, and using research to make informed judgments are among the critical skills that impact success.
