College Rep Visits

College Rep Visits 19/20

 Instructions for Signing-up For College Rep Visits

Freshman, sophomores, juniors, and seniors are invited to sign-up for college representative visits. Please sign-up at least one day in advance of the visit in the College and Career Center with Ms. Cifuentes. College visits will be taking place during Advisory and lunch. A pass will be sent out to serve as a reminder that you signed up during Advisory time. The visits are normally about 35-40 minutes long. At the end of the visit, the student’s pass will be signed for them to return to class. Students are encouraged  to attend a few visits. Students find it helpful to hear what colleges have to offer and to hear questions asked by other students as well as have the opportunity to ask any questions if they arise. 


Para las visitas durante el periodo de advisory necesitan apuntarse en avance para recibir un pase de Sra. Cifuentes. Para visitas durante el almuerzo no necesitan pase al menos que necesiten el pase como recordatorio. Para los meses de Octubre y Noviembre mas universidades aún se están apuntando. Para mantenerse al tanto usted o su hijo/a puede seguir la página de Instagram: Sanrafaelhighccc donde público más información y eventos.
