Spring 2019 Passport to College & Academic Planning Workshops

Passport to College Spring Workshop:  Saturday, February 2, 2019

The Southwest Counseling Department would like to invite you to join us for our annual Spring 2019 Passport to College and Academic Planning workshop!

We know the college search and academic planning processes can be overwhelming—it takes time, energy, and resources. The Southwest Counseling team is excited to walk with you through this process. At our upcoming workshop, we will provide a few repeat sessions that were offered at our Fall Passport to College workshop as well as new sessions focusing on the academic planning and course registration processes.

Some examples of workshop sessions are: beginning the college search, the primary and secondary factors considered in college admissions, understanding financial aid award packages, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), pursuing college athletics as a student-athlete, how to use Naviance, AchieveMpls’ Step-Up summer job opportunities, the new SWHS math sequencing program, PSEO, IB Diploma and IB Career-related Programmes, academic planning/course registration, and more. Additionally, we’ve invited some of our major scholarship representatives and other partnering organizations to host informational tables at the conclusion of the workshop sessions.

Please note, these sessions will be most relevant for those currently in grade 9, 10, and 11. All are welcome. 


Please join us on Saturday, February 2, from 8:45am-12:15pm for our Spring Passport to College and Academic Planning Workshop! Check in begins at 8:45am.


Thank you to the Southwest Foundation for the support needed to provide this resource to Southwest students and families!
