Walk-In Wednesdays!

The Guidance Department has started a new initiative this year!  We are clearing our schedules on Wednesdays; this day is specifically set aside for walk-in meetings with students.  If you have any questions, or want to meet with your counselor, please feel free to walk in on Wednesdays!

Seniors:
Seniors Reminder! We need a 30 day notice for your transcript request forms to be processed.
Senior Parent College Info Seminar
Thursday, September 17, 2015 click here to watch the presentation recorded by Weston Media Center.
An updated College Data base is now online.  See college application patterns for recent graduates to help you make your college selection.

Juniors:

Parents:  sign up for your Naviance Account. It is a useful tool for the college process and all junior parents should have an account. To get an account please email our interns Kira Wong or Julia St. Jean
Sophomores:

This is to remind folks about the practice ACT that Guidance is offering to the sophomore class on Saturday, March 5th. The fee for this test is $30 until February 29th, after which there will be an additional $5 late fee ($35 total). The preferred method of registration and payment is through the

Online Payment Center” for Weston Public Schools. If you have enrolled students in programs at Weston Recreation, you may already have an account. If you don’t have an account, it will take a day or two to set you up with a PIN. (Any questions about Online Payment can be directed to Ashley Lopes at Case House or 781-786-5236). Checks made payable to “Town of Weston” will also be accepted in the guidance office.

The test will be held at Weston High School. Check-in begins at 7:30am and the test will begin promptly at 7:45. Students who arrive late will not be allowed to take the test. Students will need to bring #2 pencils and a calculator.  We WILL NOT provide calculators or batteries. Upon arrival, students will enter through the main entrance to check in to find out their assigned room. Students will be done between 11:15 and 11:30. For information on the ACT, please go to this link for  ACT TEST PREP  and then click on Preparing for the ACT (PDF; 64 pages, 2MB) which is a test booklet with helpful information.  We strongly recommend that all sophomores take this test as it will be useful in determining which standardized tests (ACT vs SAT) may be best for individual students to take in the college application process.

If you have any questions, please contact your child's Guidance counselor.  

Freshmen:

At this point counselors have met individually with most Freshman. If you have not yet met with your counselor, please stop by to make an appointment.
