At NDHS, our college counselors provide ample support and information for parents and guardians of our college-bound seniors.
Once assigned a college counselor, students have access to essay workshops, UC/CSU application sessions, over 125 campus visits from college admissions representatives, and our annual college fair. Our counselors also meet individually with seniors to help them complete applications, proofread their essays, assist them with the financial aid process, navigate scholarships, and write customized letters of recommendation for each senior.
In the spring of sophomore year, the counseling department holds a college admissions night presentation. There is one formal parent college information meeting held in the spring semester of junior year and one meeting held during the fall semester of senior year. An additional meeting about financial aid for college is also provided to senior families in the fall. College counselors also sponsor monthly parent breakfasts throughout junior and senior year where they meet informally with small groups of parents to discuss college-related issues and answer questions.
