College + Career Planning for Seniors

Seniors: If you did not schedule a senior meeting with your counselor…

  • Review your transcript and current schedule on Infinite Campus to make sure you are meeting graduation requirements.  See your counselor if you have questions or concerns.
  • Complete Naviance “Senior Planning Worksheet” (under the About Me tab)
  • Consider registering for another ACT or SAT (with writing)
  • Continue researching colleges (use Naviance and College Board’s college search tools)
  • Ask 2 teachers for Letters of Recommendation – give them deadline, ask what they need to be able to write the letter (resume, Naviance survey, etc) Check to see how many letters your college/s need for your application.
  • Update your Colleges I’m Applying To list on Naviance
  • Divide up colleges into “reach”, “target”, and “safety” categories
  • Write down deadlines on your calendar or make a spreadsheet
  • Open college applications and create accounts
  • Turn in a transcript request form to Mrs. Hollingsworth in the Counseling Office.

New IThrive Substance Abuse Classes Starting Soon

SUBSTANCE ABUSE CLASSES
 

iTHRIVE is an early intervention program for teens 12-17 years of age that are struggling with alcohol or drug use.  It’s also a program that works closely with the parents/guardians of the participating teens.

There are 6 meetings in a session.  An intake must take place before enrolling for a 6 week session
Each evening begins at 6:30 pm and goes until 8:30 pm.

The teens will be in a group led by Dr. Alexis Saccoman, a doctor of psychology with years of experience in the substance abuse arena for youth and families.  In the teen sessions, youth will receive skills needed to understand why they use, what their triggers are, and how to stop the use.  It is a safe and supportive arena in which to listen, share and learn.

While the teens meet, the parents/guardians meet separately with Leon Bartholomay, CAC III counselor with many years of experience in the addiction field with teens and families.  The parents will learn new skills around the effects of substances on the developing brain, communication skills, how to set boundaries and get support from other parents who are experiencing the same thing.

The cost of the 6 week session is on a sliding fee scale depending on family yearly gross income, (please call for fee).

TO REGISTER call us at 303-776-8184 to schedule an intake with both the teen and the parent/guardian.  If you are with Boulder Valley School District complete the Google doc form.
