Guidance Happenings

 Happy Holidays
 It is hard to believe that we are already through half of the school year.  As we are busy completing end of course make up tests students are busy preparing for mid term exams.  As always please keep in mind that we are always available to help students and parents navigate through the challenges of the school year.  We are here to help with academic interventions and enrichments along with social and emotional challenges.  It is the time of year when seniors should be finalizing college applications and their FAFSA's. Please contact us with any questions or concerns. 

  • If you have questions about college applications and/or Naviance please stop in and ask.
  •  There are many deadlines approaching- the first of which is November 1st - this is the priority scholarship deadline for many schools including Ohio State. 
  • When working on application please pay attention to how the school wants to receive ACT/SAT scores.  There are several schools that require the score be sent directly from the testing company. 
Don't forget that Stephanie Kubec from LEAF is here on Thursdays.  She is planning to be here on Mondays starting in November.  Call the guidance office at 440-285-4060 to set up an appointment. 
The 2018-19 FAFSA is now available.  Deadlines vary by school.  Please check the school website for individual deadlines.  
Chardon High School utilizes Naviance, a college and career readiness platform that helps connect academic achievement to post-secondary goals. 
Using the program will greatly enhance and improve efficiency with sending transcripts and recommendations, as well as searching for schools and careers.  Seniors have all been introduced to Naviance and counselors will be working with underclassmen as the year goes on.
