COUNSELING DEPARTMENT FORMS (SENIORS)
Juniors will return these completed forms to their school counselor to inform the college/career search process for their senior year.
The purpose of the activity sheet is to capture all the activities, service, and work you have participated in during your high school career. In addition, you should record any honors or awards associated with your activities. Begin during your freshman year and keep adding to it. Your counselor will ask you for this form at the start of your senior year and will use the information in your recommendation. In addition, The Common App requires you to highlight this information, so it will be helpful for you to have it recorded on one document. Finally, the teachers whom you ask to write recommendations for you may also ask for the activity sheet.
This form provides the opportunity for the student to tell their counselors about themselves (beyond what is on the Activity Sheet). It will help your school counselor recommend appropriate colleges and assist you in completing applications.
PARENT INFORMATION SHEET
The purpose of this questionnaire is to give parents a tool with which they can share information about their child with the Counselor. This information may be used by the Counselor in the college recommendation. The form should be completed by the parent(s) and delivered to the counselor before the end of the Junior year. This form provides useful information for the guidance staff. The form itself is NOT sent to colleges.
STUDENT DESCRIPTIVE SUMMARY
Students should choose 2 teachers during their Junior year who they feel know them well enough to provide input that will be used in the Counselor recommendation. Students should ask teachers to complete the forms and give them to the Counselor before the end of the Junior year. These teachers should be different from the ones who you choose to ask to write the teacher recommendations at the start of your Senior year.
