College Planning and Post Secondary Guide
The BHHS College Planning and Post Secondary Guide is intended for students to begin planning for college or other post high school graduation options. The task of planning for life after high school may seem overwhelming; however, we hope that using this tool will provide parents, guardians, and students some insight and a clearer understanding of the college applications process and the preparation for various post secondary options.
The Counseling Department is pleased to introduce Naviance Student, a web-based service designed especially for our students and families. Naviance Student is a comprehensive website that both students and parents can use to help in making decisions about courses, colleges, and careers. Naviance Student is linked with Naviance Succeed, a service that we use in our counseling office to assist students in the often complicated college selection and application process.
Naviance Student will allow students and families to:
- Get involved in the planning and advising process, including building a resume
- Manage timelines and deadlines for making decisions about colleges and careers
- Research thousands of colleges and universities all around the world
- Find out which colleges are visiting our school
- Research scholarship information
- Investigate enrichment programs
Naviance Student also lets us share information with you about up-coming meetings and events, scholarship opportunities, and other resources for college and career information. In addition, the site includes a link that you can use to send the counselors e-mail messages at the click of a button. Students and families can access Naviance Student by going to https://student.naviance.com/bloomfieldhhs
