Senior Students

Hi Senior Students and Families, 
 
We are excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year!   Current Senior students and families, you can find more information on the JCP Counselors' Corner YouTube Channel as well as your counselor's Google Classroom. Stay tuned as more information becomes available!  (A helpful overview of senior year "to-do's" is attached below.) 
 
Senior Program Highlights:
Our counseling program is designed to provide students with a variety of academic, personal/social, and post-secondary supports as they path into the final stages of their high school experience and beyond. See below for details! 
 
Senior Seminars
This year, we will have three seminars throughout the year covering the following topics:
  • Common App/Naviance
  • Financial Aid Refresher
  • Letters of Recommendations
  • JCP College/Scholarship Forms/Process
  • Financial Aid Award Analysis and Next Steps
  • Transitioning Beyond High School
 
Most of the content for these seminars will be provided via live lessons during students' English courses.  More details will be made available to students via email and their counselors' Google classrooms. 
 
Post-Secondary Planning Night
We will offer an overview of senior year programming and the post-secondary planning process to families during Back-to-School Night in September.  
 
College Rep Visits
Starting in September, we will hold small-group, virtual conversations between students and college admissions representatives.  
 
Senior Conferences
In September, all students will participate in a required 1-on-1 session with their counselor.  This is an important opportunity for students to receive support for any personal/academic concerns and check-in on post-secondary planning progress.  
 
Alumni Panels
In November and December, we will also hold a few different JCP alumni panels to explore graduates' experiences in the post-secondary landscape!  We currently plan to hold three different panels:  (1) general, (1) first-generation, and (1) HBCU.  Stay tuned for more info!
 
If you'd like more information on financial aid/scholarships and/or general resources related to the post-secondary planning process, be sure to take a look at the "Post-Secondary Planning/College" tab.  Take care!
