College & Career Counseling

College and Career Counseling




Naviance is a web-based program that allows students to find college information, research specific colleges and careers, and take assessments to determine future college majors and career paths. All students have an account with individual login information, and are encouraged to use it frequently to aid in discovering their post-secondary goals. South High’s Naviance page can be accessed at



Scheduled College and Career Visits 2017-2018:


Presentations are scheduled throughout the year and are updated regularly as new appointments are confirmed. Listening to a college admission counselor can provide a clear sense of what a university has to offer, and can help students clarify what they are looking for in a college/university. In most cases, the presenter is the same person who reviews applications and makes admission decisions. All visits take place in the College/Career Center (R-4) unless otherwise noted. Students will need to sign up on Naviance to attend. Students will then receive a pass 24-48 hours in advance which will need to be signed by the teacher for permission (most require 24-hour notice).

Trade/Tech Education

There are many programs that train students to do a specific trade, rather than earn a degree. This often comes with certification in a career or trade. These can be individual schools for career education, or can be programs through community colleges or places like SoCal ROC.


Southern California Regional Occupation Center (So Cal ROC)

The So Cal ROC program allows students to become acquainted with certain jobs. SoCal ROC has a variety of courses that offer certification and other benefits, while earning high school credits for free.  To learn more, visit, or meet with the SoCal ROC counselor when she is on campus by making an appointment in the counseling office.
