Communication:  SRVHS PTSA emails a weekly bulletin (Wolf Pack Weekly) to parents every Sunday.  Please review the C&CC section in the  bulletin for weekly updates, due dates, and important information relevant to college and career information. For students, information is posted daily under school loop news and college information/events can be found in Naviance.  See the page behind this one to view the current week's Wolf Pack Weekly.  

Student workshops being run through C&CC can be accessed through the student's Naviance account and are also publicized on school loop news as dates approach. Students may schedule individual appointments with us as well by coming in to the C&CC to schedule an appointment and/or they may email us via school loop. 

Parent Education Workshops: Throughout the year, Counseling, College and Career provide parent education workshops that coincide with student activities/education taking place during the school day through Counseling or the College and Career Center.  See the Wolf Pack Weekly or School Loop for announcements of parent workshops and presentations.

Wolf Tracks...where did our Class of 2019 Seniors report they would be in fall 2019?  See the "Wolf Tracks 2019" attachment below for a list of colleges and the number of students who plan to enroll.   

Naviance Student:  All students (and parents) have been given a log in to access this valuable college research and planning tool.  Take some time to explore the features and start to build your list of "colleges I am thinking about" and possible careers to explore.  It is never too early to start the research process...and the earlier you start, the most prepared you will be for your senior year when you will actually be applying to college, or seeking that training program, or planning a gap year!  Your potential is limitless!  Enjoy the journey of exploration!

Seniors applying to schools that require letters of recommendation!  Your guidance counselors need to write at least one of your requested letters, so have prepared a "senior packet" for you to complete to make that request.  Please download the packet pages from your Naviance Student home page (scroll to the bottom to find the link called "Document Resources").  The instructions for completing and submitting the packet are included.

Note:  if you need assistance with your Naviance log in, please email Mrs. Schratz, jschratz@srvusd.net  or Mrs. Woerner, swoerner@srvusd.net to get your account reset/activated.
