The sophomore year guidance curriculum is devoted to career exploration. Guidance counselors present a two-day workshop in Wellness classes that introduces students to Naviance, where they will complete a personality and career interest inventory. Results of the inventories can help inform students' potential college majors and career paths.


Pre-ACT - October 15, 2016

Results of the Pre-ACT will arrive in January 2017; guidance counselors will meet with all sophomores to review results and transcripts. Sophomores who were unable to take the Pre-ACT can pick up a test book at that time.
