Grade Level Career Unit Presentations - Virtual
Since we cannot be with you for an in-person Career Units or a Grade-Level Parent Night, the Counseling team with the College & Career Center is creating virtual presentations for you. In early September, we asked you to anticipate receiving these presentations via your teachers' google classrooms. Instead, we plan to send you these presentations through this Parent Square/Student Square platform, to be viewed at your earliest convenience. After your Career Unit is sent through Parent/Student Square, the presentations will be posted on the College & Career Center webpage under each grade level button. Here are the dates you can expect to receive your grade level virtual career unit:
SENIOR CAREER UNIT - Tuesday, October 6 (via Parent/Student Square)
JUNIOR CAREER UNIT - Tuesday, October 13 (via Parent/Student Square)
SOPHOMORE CAREER UNIT - Tuesday, November 3 (via Parent/Student Square)
FRESHMAN CAREER UNIT - Tuesday, November 10 (via Parent/Student Square)
Regular October PSAT - Cancelled
Possible January Test Date for Juniors Only - TBD Due to COVID 19, we are unable to offer a PSAT administration on our campus this October. We know that every Fall, Sophomores and Juniors look forward to this opportunity to take a full-length practice SAT, and for Juniors, the opportunity to qualify for a National Merit Scholarship. For our current Juniors, we will do our best, with the College Board, to host the PSAT in January In the meantime, we encourage Sophomores and Juniors to take advantage of the many free online practice opportunities for both SAT and ACT.
This is an excellent opportunity for Juniors, Seniors and parents to learn about the Financial Aid process, and especially the FAFSA (Free Applicaiton for Federal Student Aid). The soonest opportunity to hear a Financial Aid Presentation is thanks to Folsom Lake College. Even though you may not have FLC on your college list, this informational presentation will be helpful for students planning to attend any type of college.
