ATTN: Seniors “Life After ARHS Meetings”

You are be able to schedule your fall “Life After ARHS” meetings.

Schedule your “Life After ARHS” Meetings with me!

These are 45 minute meetings. A portion of the meeting will be “student led,” meaning I’ll provide you with 3-4 prompts for you to talk about what your hopes, dreams, and plans are. Own your future. This is a time to discuss your plans for the future, we’ll look at your college list, consider careers, interests, explore certificate programs, GAP Year, employment opportunities, and military. Whatever floats your boat…

Life After ARHS Meetings with Ms. Cuffee-Gray sign up- link

IMPORTANT!Some things you’ll be required to complete PRIOR to meeting:

1. Update or complete your “Life After ARHS” survey in Naviance (54 Questions for 4 Year colleges, or 22 for 2 year and options other than 4 year colleges – if you have questions, check with your school counselor, Ms. Garrity or me.)

2. If you are applying to a program that requires a transcript and/or recommendations, you must complete the LIME GREEN form (seniors under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian sign as well).The Lime Green Form is attached to this email. It is a fillable .pdf and goes to Ms. Garrity (garrityc@arps.org).Completion of this form is the only way your transcripts and recommendations will be sent out!

3. Applying to college? List the schools you’ll be applying to in Naviance (even the schools you are REMOTELY interested in). Note that Fridays are First Generation Fridays – Priority will be given to First Generation and underrepresented students on Fridays. Optional and Strongly Encouraged: College Planning Howlers! Rather than the Senior College Planning Handbook, there will be a series of “Howlers” (ala Harry Potter) on topics related to planning for Life After ARHS. Read them and get smarter about the process. Howlers will be located in my virtual office. & complete the “Senior Review of College Knowledge 2021” to clarify your knowledge of the college planning process.
