    • Advise students in relevant testing such as the SAT and ACT including testing dates, registration, and practice tests.

    • Provide comprehensive college planning presentations for grades 8-12 as well as parent nights on topics such as financial aid, college athletics, and transitioning to college.

    • Assist with college and career exploration using Naviance Family Connection.
