  • Dear Class of 2022,

    Summer is a great time to get a jump on the many tasks required during the college admissions process.  Being proactive will assist in keeping yourself on task during the busy fall season.

    • Complete the Student Self-Description in the "About Me" tab in Naviance.  This information is used by your counselor when writing your college recommendation.
    • Ask your parents to complete the "Parent Brag Sheet".  This provides your counselor with additional insight into you as a person.
    • Complete the "Teacher Request" #1 & #2. These forms will be used by your teacher who is writing your letter of recommendation.  It assists in their description of you as a student in their class, so please be specific.
    • Evaluate your testing plan.  Check with the colleges you intend to apply to and make sure you have taken all needed assessments.  Register for any additional fall testing.
    • Finalize your college list. Create a detailed chart of your selections by degree of academic ability, cost, deadlines and required materials.
    • Work on your essay. The 2021-22 Common App essay prompts can be found on the Common App website.   (https://www.commonapp.org/apply/essay-prompts
    • Fulfill specific requirements for athletes and artists. If you are thinking about pursuing the arts or playing a sport, your application process may include additional components.
    • Create application accounts on college websites or by using the Common Application.  Make sure you are using the 2021-22 version.

    We will meet with the Senior Class during the second week of school to explain the procedure for requesting transcripts and letters of recommendation. Enjoy the rest of your summer! - SHS Guidance Department
