Applying Early Action? Are you submitting scores?
If you are not sure if schools you are applying to are requiring test scores this year, please visit the school's Admissions website. School counselors do NOT have the ability to send test scores for you.
Considering a trade? HVAC could be for you!
Pursuing a career in the trades is a wonderful opportunity. On Friday, October 29th at 12:15, Greg Brody from Lake HVAC, the largest HVAC company in the Greater Boston Area, is coming to the Career and College Readiness Center to talk to students who are interested in the field.
This event will be handled the same way that an Admissions rep visit is; you will simply register on Naviance and present the teacher whose class you will miss a screenshot of your registration. You will be responsible for connecting with that person on any missed work.
