- Colleges have been adding creative and alternate ways to help students learn more about their institutions and programs by offering virtual tours as well as one-on-one virtual meetings. Check with the college you are interested in by phone or website to register for their virtual programs and review their visitation protocol. Here is one example: Creighton Virtual Visit
- Admissions officers from Dartmouth College, Northwestern University, Princeton University, University of California, Berkeley, and Vanderbilt University invite you to learn about their institutions, hear advice about the college search and application process, and get your questions answered. Learn more.
- Counselors are setting up individual college prep and planning Zoom meetings with all juniors and their parents. If you have not scheduled a meeting, do so ASAP.
- Complete your Counselor/Teacher Recommendation Request form and provide a copy to your counselor and up to two teachers who have agreed to write you a recommendation. Check with the colleges you are applying to and see whether or not they require a letter from a teacher because many do not. Confirm your request on Naviance under "Colleges" tab then "Apply to College", then "Letters of Recommendation", for each recommender. Watch video guide. Do this before school is out for the summer.
