Class of 2018
College Jump Start
Each summer, through support provided by Viper Nation Education Foundation, VHS hosts College Jump Start sessions for rising seniors. These sessions are four days (Mon-Thur), 2 hours/day with the goal of launching students on their college application process.
Registration is through Naviance.
Senior Workdays are offered during PIT Mon-Thur in the fall semester. This is an opportunity for students to receive individualized help on college applications and next steps. Bring whatever it is you need to work on, and we'll be here to help! Essays, resumes, application questions, etc.!
Senior Summit will take place on Wednesday, October 11th while the underclassmen take the PSAT. This day will be run conference-style, allowing seniors to choose sessions that best meet their needs and interests. However, seniors must make these selections in ADVANCE of Senior Summit by completing the Senior Summit 2017 survey after the counselor one-on-one meeting.
Students who do not pre-register will be assigned sessions to attend, which must be followed for attendance purposes. Meanwhile, students who have passed STAAR, are TSI complete, not participating in COOL Week, and not in M/W ACC British Literature who would prefer to use this day as an excused College Visit may do so. This must be indicated on the Senior Summit 2017 survey. It is the student's responsibility to provide proper documentation to the VHS Attendance Office after the visit for this absence to be excused.
