12th Grade

For your planning, counselors will offer Presentations and Application Workshops to help you navigate the college application process. We will cover how to finalize your college list, using Naviance in conjunction with the Common Application, applying to CSU, UC and private & out-of-state schools, as well as how to request Secondary School Reports, Teacher Evaluations, Letters of Recommendation and Transcripts. The presentations will also be posted for review, before and after you attend.

In order to facilitate your success in 12th grade, please be sure to follow these important guidelines:
  • Pay close attention to the 12th Grade Counseling Calendar.  If you follow it, you should not miss any important events.
  • Register for your Naviance Account now, if you have not done so already. You will need an active Naviance account in order to sign up for college rep. visits to the College & Career Center, receive reminders and updates from the Counseling Dept. throughout the college application process, finalize your "colleges I'm applying to" list (using the many college research features available, including acceptance history with admission statistics available for CCA Classes of 2010-2017), complete the Brag Packet if applying to colleges that require letters of recommendation, *coordinate school forms and letters of recommendation from your counselor and academic teachers, and search for scholarships  as they are posted throughout the year.
If you already have a Naviance account, sign in with your e-mail address and password. If you forgot your log in information, use the “forgot password” link or contact Mrs. Burton in the College and Career Center.
Students: If  you have never registered, use your student ID number as the registration code. 

Parents: If you have never registered, use the your student's ID number with a lowercase letter p (ex.123456p)

as the registration code.

*Please enter a valid email address that you check often, as we will be using Naviance as a primary means of communicating with you throughout the entire college application season.

  • Attend your grade-level presentation and then review it again afterwards. It never hurts to see & review instructions, pertinent information and valuable guidance more than once. There is also always an opportunity to ask questions. 
  • Use the many college application resources provided by the Counseling Dept., including the College App. Guide by TypeCollege App FAQs, Four-year College Checklist, and Creating and Finalizing Your College List to make sure that you are completing all the necessary steps and entering the correct information for CCA and our courses and schedule. 
  • Listen to the Daily Bulletin in your period 2 class and read the bi-weekly Counseling, College & Career Newsletter.
  • Come in to Counseling during daily walk-in periods - before or after school or at lunch - with any questions
