About 40 SCSD counselors recently attended a National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) workshop, where they learned about the college admission process so they can better guide the students they work with.
 
The counselors participated in general group sessions that provided information on FAFSA, ACT and working with underserved populations and were also able to select break-out sessions on cultural competency and Generation Z, what middle school counselors need to know about the college admissions process and more.
 
“The sessions were engaging and provided a good perspective on new changes and updates that have taken place within education,” Grant School Counselor Dominiquie Herndon said. “Our students will now be able to have access to and learn about the different resources and opportunities available to them through their counselors. I believe there are so many more opportunities available to students to fulfill their goals as they move forward with their educational journey!”
 
The workshop was sponsored by ACT, New York State Association for College Admission Counseling, OCC and SU. Thank you to all of our counselors who attended!
