Junior Interview (2nd Trimester of Junior Year)

The Junior Interview is a one on one appointment with your counselor. It's a chance to talk privately about anything that's on your mind, check your credits & review your forecasting. It's a chance to hear about information and resources that support your plans for after high school. This newsletter has many of the resources typically shared during that interview.

You can use the graduation plan from your junior interview to select classes for senior year in the spring and verify your senior schedule will give you the credits and classes needed for whatever goal you'd like to pursue after graduation.

The counseling team will be visiting IHS courses to conduct these interviews. If you are in Classic South olease schedule your Junior Interview with your counselor any time after February. Schedule your Junior Interview through this link.

The Junior Project gives you information and resources for post graduation planning. You will see all of the Junior Project components in your Canvas account. Some of the major tools you will use are Career Information System (CIS) and Naviance. Once you know how to use these tools, you can access them whenever you like as you research post high school options. Naviance is an excellent tool for organizing your research with helpful links.
