  • Researching Colleges
  • College Visits
  • Using Naviance To Assist In Planning
  • The College Application Process
  • Post-Secondary Testing

Not only will there be information presented on these items, there will be time afterwards to answer questions that students and families may have about them. This is a valuable presentation for any student and their family looking to get a jump on their senior year and beyond. 
Senior Exit Survey

In April of each year, each student in the senior class is required to complete their Senior Exit Survey. The answers provided on this survey (a) help with graduation arrangements, (b) give SHS the required post-secondary information we must report to the Pennsylvania Department of Education each year, (c) let us know how we can continue to work to improve SHS, and (d) let the SHS counselors know where to send your final transcript if you plan to attend college in the fall.
The survey is located on Naviance (https://student.naviance.com/susquehannock). Once logged in, the survey can be found by clicking on ‘About Me’ in the top left corner of the homepage and then select ‘Surveys from Your School’ from the dropdown menu. This will take you to a new page where you will then click on ‘Senior Exit Survey’ to complete the survey.

All members of the SHS Class of 2022 are required to complete this survey no later than Friday, May 5th! However, students that complete this survey accurately prior to Tuesday, April 18th will be given the chance to be one of ten students to either (a) receive full reimbursement for the price of their prom ticket(s) or (b) have their family receive preferred parking for Graduation.

If you have any questions or run into any trouble with completing the survey, please email Mr. Shervington at matthew.shervington@sycsd.org

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. We are resuming in-person visits this school year, but will also be conducting virtual visits as well.

Canvas Parent App Instructions

Canvas is the Learning Management System that most SHS students will use to view and submit their classroom assignments for their in-person and digital days. All SHS students are assigned an account and parents are eligible to have an “observer” account which gives them access to view their student’s courses, assignments, due dates, etc. It is highly encouraged that parents set up this account. Additionally, this year the SHS Counseling Office also has a page on Canvas which parents can access through an observer account.  For more information and instructions on how to create your observer account, 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.
