Resources are seasonal and regularly updated.
CCC programs are developed with the aim of reaching as many students as possible, and to reflect the diverse nature of our community and myriad post-secondary options. The resources and events offered through the SRHS CCC are thoughtfully planned to promote exploration and to reassure students that there is no “one right way” to design their post-secondary plan. We strive to empower students to conduct research, and to take ownership of their post-secondary planning. Using the Naviance Family Connections platform, the Counselor is able to email students and families with information as long as they opt to add their email to their accounts. Please access your Naviance account often.
Naviance Family Connections:
Each SRHS student has a Naviance Family Connections account and is asked to use it as a research tool for career exploration and college planning. Naviance activities may be worked on during class visits to the CCC, but also can be completed from home or from any computer with Internet access. From creating a resume, to taking career interests quizzes, to connecting to college admissions office, Naviance Family Connection is an excellent resource. The homepage holds information updated by SRHS CCC and changes regularly based on local and community offerings.

Students are encouraged to “drop-in” during morning break, lunch, or directly after school. Students with a free period during the day can use this time to visit the CCC.
