COLLEGE INFORMATION

Naviance

The counselors plan on using Naviance in presentations for college and career readiness. As we continue to roll-out Naviance in phases, we plan on using it more and more as a form of communication. Counselors can update students and parents about up-coming meetings, news, events, and other Web resources for college and career information. Please encourage your student(s) to access their Naviance account often!

Financial Information:

All scholarship information can now be found in Naviance! Log on as a guest or a student. The password for a guest is bellevue, click on the COLLEGES tab, at the bottom you will see “scholarships & money” with links to:

The FAFSA (free application for federal student aid) is the first step to receiving aid for college & is used by most schools & states to award financial aid & scholarships. The FAFSA goes “live” on January 1st so will be available at that time. Many financial aid deadlines are in mid-January so complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1st! To complete the FAFSA, go to www.fafsa.ed.gov. Start with the online tutorial if you have questions on how to complete the application or watch this youtube video: www.YouTube.com/federalstudentaid.

There are websites that offer links to a wide range of general scholarships. A reputable scholarship site is www.thewashboard.org. Also check out www.fastweb.com and www.finaid.org.

Struggling with a class?

SENIOR YEAR GRADES ARE IMPORTANT. If students are applying to private colleges, their first semester grades will be sent to colleges in early February and will influence whether or not they are admitted.  If students are applying to public colleges, final year transcripts will be sent in late June; colleges reserve the right to rescind the student’s admittance if senior year grades are different than 9th-11th year grades.  If students are struggling in a class, they should talk with their teacher.  They can use our school library for computer access and a quiet place to study – it is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30 – 5:00 pm.                     


Struggling with your Teenager?

There are some wonderful classes being offered through Youth Eastside Services (YES): Positive Discipline, Temperament & Parenting through Separation & Divorce. These classes focus on building up the parent-child relationship & reducing family conflict using genuine respect. Positive Discipline is neither Permissive nor Authoritarian. It promotes the Authoritative parenting style which is the parenting approach recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. For more information go to www.YouthEastsideServices.org or Info@YouthEastsideServices.org Registration required, call 425.747.4937
