If you have any questions or would like to schedule a specific appointment time with your counselor, please email your counselor or stop in at the Guidance Office and speak with Mrs. Vail.
Working papers can be obtained through the school district in which you reside.
Mrs. Vail keeps an updated list of scholarships for seniors and underclassmen in Naviance. Click on the “Colleges” tab; select “Scholarships & Money,” then click on “Scholarship List.” Filtering by Diocesan/NDGP or Local will show you scholarships that are only available to Notre Dame students and/or the surrounding school districts.

Enter the College Decision Contest for a chance to win great prizes! All you need to do to enter is bring in copies of ALL decision letters (rejections/denials/waitlists as well as acceptances) to Mr. Allen or Mrs. Uliana no later than April 30th. You will receive 1 entry for each letter submitted. Acceptance letters award entries for Dunkin’ gift cards, while rejection/denial letters award entries for a sweatshirt from the college you plan to attend.
All transcript requests and teacher recommendation requests must be submitted through Naviance.
It’s scholarship season! You can find scholarship information here:
- Naviance: Click Colleges > Scholarships and Money – Here you will find a National Scholarship Search as well as the Scholarship List, which can connect you with local scholarships.
If you’re not in the habit of checking your email daily, you should start doing so this year. Colleges and your school counselor will be sending emails with important information about your college and scholarship applications on a regular basis.
Your Junior year is the time to focus on your academics, as these will be the most recent grades when you submit your college applications. Additionally, now is the time to begin exploring your college options in-depth. Log into your Naviance account regularly and keep an eye on the calendar on the Guidance website so that you’re aware of the colleges that are coming to visit you here at Notre Dame. If you see a college that you’re interested in, please be sure to register to attend the visit.
Sophomore year is the perfect time to begin exploring what careers you may be interested in after high school.
Naviance is an excellent resource for finding information about colleges and careers. You can find a list of summer programs held on college campuses in your Naviance Student account under Colleges > Research Colleges > Enrichment Programs. These programs are great opportunities to experience a week in a college dorm, explore your career interests, and enhance your resume.
Welcome to your first year of high school! We hope you have your best year yet!
The grades you earn this year can set the tone for the rest of your high school experience. When you apply to colleges as a senior, they will see the courses you took and the grades you earned as a freshman. Do your best, and don’t be afraid to ask for help!
Seniors are responsible for their college applications; please do not create any student accounts for your child or use your email address to create a Common App, College Board, or ACT account for your child. Doing so can impede the process of submitting transcripts and recommendation letters to colleges through Naviance and may delay your child’s college applications.
