Senior Students

Hi Senior Students and Families, 
We are excited to begin the 2022-2023 school year!   Current Senior students and families, you can find more information in your counselor's Google Classroom. Stay tuned as more information becomes available! 
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 (Date TBD)
College Rep Visits
Starting in September, we will hold small-group conversations between students and college admissions representatives.  We'll have more info available in August!
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 Panel
In November, we plan to hold at least one JCP alumni panel to explore graduates' experiences in the post-secondary landscape!  We hope to have alumni representation from a combination of private/public schools, Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).  We also hope to have alumni representation from a variety of post-secondary pathways like gap/service year and the military. 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!
