Fall 2021 Probe College Tour

Student registration is now open for the Probe College Tour! Here's what you need to know. Your students must pre-register online. The Probe tour is going "touchless" with students required to pre-register for their chosen fair. Students should register at RegisterProbe.com.


They will immediately receive a QR code on the screen, and via email. Students will need the code either on their mobile phone or have a printed copy. A list of college exhibitors scheduled to appear at in-person fairs may be found at RegisterProbe.com.


For more information on the student registration process, read our Help article.

Seniors

Individual and Class Meetings

We will begin meeting with senior classes in the month of September. During this time, we will discuss graduation requirements, the college application process, career search information, arranging college visits, HOPE GPA, and your GAFutures account. Additionally, we will meet with you individually to discuss your post secondary plans and Naviance. Please be prepared to discuss any questions you may have regarding your post secondary options.


If a recommendation letter is needed for a college application and/or scholarship, students are required to complete the Senior Brag Sheet. As a courtesy, please allow teachers or counselors two weeks to process any requests.

Naviance

Attention Seniors and Parent(s) of Seniors:


NAVIANCE is a college and career readiness platform that will be used in Fayette County. You will use this platform to connect with Common App, and to request electronic transcripts as well as letters of recommendations to be sent to post secondary schools. Please click the link below for directions.

Letter of Recommendation

Do you need a letter of recommendation? Complete the Senior Brag Sheet and share it with your counselor and/or teacher. You will be prompted to make a copy. Please rename it with your name e.g. John Doe Brag Sheet. The more you include, the more we will be able to brag and write about you! Reminder: Please allow teachers or counselors at least two weeks to complete your letter of recommendation.
