|NDCL counselors are deeply committed to guiding students and families through the college application process.
Students use their individual accounts on Naviance Family Connection to help them explore college and career options. Naviance also allows students to organize their college application information, request transcripts, search for scholarships and stay up-to-date on college visits to NDCL.
In addition to providing students with college exploration tools in a group setting, counselors meet individually with students to discuss college selections and applications. During the second semester of junior year, all juniors receive personalized college information from their counselor. In senior year, counselors extensively review the college application process in groups as well as during meetings with each student.
Information sessions for students and parents include a College Kickoff Night and Financial Aid Workshop for seniors, a College Planning Workshop for juniors and a College Credit Plus Information Night.
