Topic Details

NCAA: Things to Think About if Your Child Wants to Play in College (all grades)

Starting from the beginning, we will talk about the different Divisions, eligibility requirements, and statistics on the possibility of playing in college.  Session will allow for Q&A.  Handouts will include the NCAA manual for families.

Naviance as a Resource (Current Sophomore, Junior)

Naviance is an under-utilized resource for our parents meanwhile it is where the bulk of the work is being done by the student.  This session will include the Naviance basics, along with the best use for parents.  This session will conclude with a Q&A and parents who need help with their log-in will receive immediate assistance at the end.

Application Next Steps (Juniors only)

As we head into summer break, things can be forgotten by September.  This session will provide parents with a “check-list” of student next steps/things to think about to include (but not limited to): recommendation letter requests, application next steps, essay next steps, college visits, and testing plan.  Q&A will be encouraged.  We will include a handout of these topics.

Should you have any questions ahead of time, please contact Bryn Campbell bcampbell@holyghostprep.org or 215-639-2101 x 229.  We hope you can join us!

Sincerely,

The College Guidance Department
