Virtual College Visits

As always, SHS is proud to partner with many colleges to offer visits from admissions representatives to provide our students valuable information about different schools. Now, more than ever when on-site visits may not be possible, we encourage students to take advantage of these visits which will be virtual. Students can sign up on Naviance for these visits and attend a meeting through Google Meets/Zoom in the library classroom while meeting social distancing requirements. To date, there are already 30+ colleges which have signed up for these visits offering options on both A- and B-days. For a list of colleges that are scheduled to visit and when please click here.
The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is continuing to offer services and assistance to students and their families. There are a variety of interventions and programs available, including counseling assessments through True North, school-based counseling through Pennsylvania Comprehensive Behavioral Health (PCBH), and monitoring and mentoring programs through the school. If you are interested in any of these services, please contact your child's school counselor.
