12th Grade

On September 20 & 21, counselors offered presentations which covered the college application process - including using Naviance along with the Common Application, applying to CSU, UC, private and out-of-state schools, and requesting letters of recommendation and transcripts. You may review the presentations at any time here, 12th Grade Presentations.
On Wed. Oct. 19, 2016, UC, CSU, Common App and Community College application workshops will be offered at CCA by campus representatives.  
NOTE:  We strongly recommend that you do not submit any application materials until you attend the presentations to have your questions answered and to assure that your application is accurate. Once an application is submitted, it cannot be edited.

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 College Calendar.  If you follow it, you should not miss any important events.
  • Sign up for your Naviance Account now, if you haven't already. Most college materials and letters of recommendation will be processed via Naviance. Use your legal name, and use your student ID for your password. If you forget your password or user name, see Ms. Burton in the Career Center.  Make sure that you provide a VALID e-mail address because the Counseling Department will use it to send important, time-sensitive messages specifically aimed at your grade level.
  • Attend your grade-level presentation. There is always an opportunity to ask questions
  • Use the College App. Guide, Checklists, College App FAQs, and Sample Common App in Naviance 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
