College Campus Tours

As you begin to receive your acceptance letters Ms. Cavanaugh wants you to think about visiting the campuses you are interested in before commitment to them.  There are many ways you can do this.  

First and foremost, you may contact each college directly via their websites to view campus tour information.  A lot of tours require you to RSVP ahead of time so be sure to check before you get there.  Your families can make this a memorable road trip, add it on to vacations over spring break or stop by on the weekends.

 If you need any help or have questions please see Ms. Cavanaugh in the CCC. 

In addition, International Student Tours (Not affiliated with SVUSD or SVHS) will package fully customized tours and trips for you and your family. 

Are you a first generation college student?

Check out this website and sign up now to get a lot of great information on scholarships and special information for students whose parents didn't go to college.

FERPA Letter giving permission for School Personnel to Release your Information to Colleges:

Click Here

In addition to the Brag sheet, complete a FERPA agreement. The FERPA page MUST be completed in order for your recommender to be able to share pertinent information with admissions officers. You decide what you will allow to be released and whether or not you waive your "right of access." Keep in mind that colleges consider letters written for students who WAIVE their right of access more genuine and informative than those written for students who do NOT. After you complete the FERPA, PRINT it, SIGN it, and deliver it to your recommender.
