Students use Naviance to research schools, to request and submit letters of recommendation to colleges and universities, and to request transcripts.  The Naviance program can be accessed on the district portal. Senior students applying into post secondary programs MUST add their college/university to the Naviance account, and link their Common Application for electronic submission of application documents.

SAT and ACT testing

By early fall of the senior year, students should have completed the SAT and/or ACT testing.  All registrations are done online through the College Board website.  Please see your counselor for fee waivers.  Students can access scores for the SAT and PSAT in their College Board accounts. Personalized test prep is available for FREE on Khan Academy.
