College and Career Center
Newark Memorial's College and Career Center is located next to the library. The office is staffed between the hours of 6:30am - 3:30pm.
Students are welcomed before school, brunch, lunch and after school, to research colleges, careers, scholarships, internships and volunteer opportunities. The Career Center computers have access to the internet as well as Naviance (College and Career Development software).
Representatives from colleges across the country visit our Career Center for brunch and lunchtime workshops and students are given the opportunity to hear visiting guest speakers discuss their specific careers at presentations throughout the year.
The NMHS College and Career Exploration Program (CCEP) is a concentrated, comprehensive series of events developed to enable and encourage all grade level students to work toward their post secondary educational plans and to create an in depth college and career pathway and profile.
In our efforts to reduce stress throughout the college search and application process, we try to ensure that students and parents alike have the information that they need when they need it. We do so through the following methods:
- Evening workshops for parents (UC and CSU application, Common App. Financial Aid)
- CCEP implementation including Career assessments to each student annually utilizing the Naviance Family Connection system.
- Work with counselors in classroom presentations covering topics including testing, applications, financial aid and finding the right colleges.
