College & Career Planning

Beginning in tenth grade, students work collaboratively both in the classroom and individually with their college and career counselor to identify their goals for post-secondary planning. The college and career counselors will teach lessons on career exploration, offer workshops on various topics related to career, college, military and other alternative post-secondary options, and meet individually with students and their families to help each student realize their goal.

The college and career counselors will also expose students to a virtual curriculum through Schoology, posting grade-specific resources, activities, reminders and announcements in the Counseling Department Schoology group for students to access at any point. Parents can also view this content through their own Schoology account. For help accessing Schoology, please click here.

Reminders: Class of 2024 Collegebound Students

A few reminders for next steps now that many of you are in the final stages of submitting applications.

  1. Don’t forget to check emails and application portals for updates on your application status and outcomes. This is also how colleges will communicate with you about additional items you need to submit (i.e. official test scores, mid-year grade reports, financial aid documents, deposits, etc).
  2. In early February, mid-year grade reports will be submitted to the colleges in your Naviance list. There is no action you need to take in order for grades to be submitted. We encourage seniors to check HAC once grades are finalized (tentatively February 5) to ensure grades are accurate. Notify your College and Career Counselor if there are any grade errors that need to be corrected before mid-year grades are sent.
  3. The FAFSA is open and many of the soft launch glitches have been resolved. If you haven’t already, please begin your FAFSA process by following FAFSA step by step instructions.
  4. Once you successfully submit the FAFSA, you will see an instant confirmation screen. Don’t close it! You can link to the PA State Grant Form directly from the FAFSA.
  5. Students- don’t forget to update your counselor and teachers (especially those who wrote your letters) about your outcomes. We also ask that you update your application outcomes in the “Colleges I’m Applying To” page of your Naviance account. This is important data for both current and future Radnor students.

Please let the College and Career Counselors knows if you have any questions.
