    Subject: GHS College & Career Center - Important Information

    Class of 2024,

    Welcome to your senior year! The GHS College and Career Center is here to help you over the next year with all of your college & career planning needs. Here is some helpful information to get you started when thinking about your future. If you have any questions along the way, please feel free to reach out to me or your academic counselor. 

    College visits will be held both throughout September and October. Colleges will visit on Tuesdays during lunch in the quad. These visits are open to all students and are a great way for you to connect with college representatives and get your questions answered. Please check our event calendar to see which colleges are currently signed up and check back often for updates.

    College & Career Community Events happen in-person and virtually throughout the year. Please continue to check this list for information about free, upcoming events to help you with college & career planning. These events are not sponsored by GHS/LVJUSD.

    College Applications are an important part of your senior year. Visit our page with more information and important dates for applying to college.

    Before starting your college applications, please review the GHS Class of 2024 - Important Information for College Applications.  We encourage seniors to wait until after Senior Information Night, on September 20, to submit their college applications.

    Not sure if you should take the SAT or ACT? Check out our page with more information on whether or not you should take the test for four-year college admissions. If you need to take the test for admissions, please register early as test centers and space is limited. CSUs and UCs will not use the SAT or ACT for admissions for scholarships decisions. If you are going straight to a community college, you do not need to take the test. 

    Have you started to think about Scholarships and Financial Aid? If not, now is the time to start thinking about how you are going to pay for college. Scholarships are now available for seniors and current opportunities are available on our website. Make sure you read about filing your FAFSA or CADAA. Applications open in December.

    Need an official or unofficial transcript? Please order your transcript here

    Not sure where to start? Check out our College Planning Resources page. Research colleges that are a good fit for you, create your college list, get a senior year checklist and more. 

    Not sure what you want to study in college? Not sure if college is the best fit for you? Thinking about an apprenticeship program or joining the military? Check out our Career Exploration Resources for more post-high school options.   

    Lastly, our department will be hosting various events this fall. Please save the date for Senior Information Night on Wednesday, September 20 at 6:00 pm in the Student Union. Additional events include Financial Aid Night, college application workshops, the Tri-Valley College & Career Fair and more. More information about these events will be shared over the next few weeks. 

    I hope this helps get you started. I look forward to working with you this year.

  • Reminder:  

    Seniors,  Just a reminder that it is a privilege to have off campus lunch.   You MUST show your 23-24 school ID to the Campus Supervisors at the gate in order to leave.  If you forgot your ID, please see Carol Rice for an off campus pass during break or lunch (NOT during class time), then exit through the front gate.   You can do this three times before you are referred to me.  If you need a replacement ID, it is $10 at Student Service window.  Allowing others to use your ID will result in lost of lunch privilege and/or disciplinary actions.  Regards,  Mrs. Vu
