What's Happening - December Edition

Guidance Office News and Events for Pius X Juniors

Junior Interviews!

Sign up for interview times begins on Tuesday, January 5th at 7:00 pm. Junior interviews will take place from January 11-29th. All juniors should participate and parents are encouraged to attend with their student to discuss senior year, college, scholarships, and career paths. Meetings will last approximately 30 minutes and day and evening times will be available. Once you have selected a counselor, click the small blue arrow keys beside the date for available time slots!

College Exploration!

All juniors should have a username and password for Naviance. We recommend that all juniors fill out the Game Plan found under the About Me tab. We ask that all juniors create a resume and bring a copy of their resume to their junior interview. Juniors can use the Naviance SuperMatch College Search to begin looking at colleges. This is a great search engine when starting the college planning process.

Junior ASVAB Test!

The ASVAB will take place for all juniors on Tuesday, January 5th. Students are expected to be in dress code. The test will begin at 8:00 am and conclude at approximately 11:30 am. There is no school on this day and juniors will be dismissed after the test.

TEC Retreat!

If you are interested in having your student attend a retreat, we highly recommend the TEC Retreat. This is a very popular retreat for juniors and seniors; however, they fill up quickly so you will want to sign up early. Click here for more information!

College-bound juniors should consider taking the ACT and/or SAT (college entrance exams) at least once in the spring of their junior year. Both exams are accepted by colleges, though most students perform better on the ACT. Plan your date to take the ACT and/or SAT this spring! If you have already taken a test, consider looking into test preparation classes before your next exam. Click here to check out a variety of different test preparation services!
