The College and Career Center helps students in all grade levels to think about and plan what they will do after high school. Students and parents are invited to use the center to investigate colleges and careers. Students may drop in individually or come with their classes. Parents and families may schedule an appointment. Our goal is to provide the best and most current information regarding colleges, universities, and careers. Some of our services and programs include: 
  • Finding colleges that are a good fit for you
  • Filling out your college applications
  • College essays and personal statements
  • Understanding financial aid
  • Fee waivers for the SAT or ACT for low-income students
  • Finding scholarships, need- and merit-based
  • Resources to find a job or internship
  • Finding summer programs
  • Resume writing and interviewing
  • Finding options for SAT or ACT preparation
 
The College and Career Center also:
  • Hosts meetings between college representatives and students (the full schedule of when college representatives come to MVHS to talk to students is on Naviance)
  • Can be a quieter place to study than the library or tutorial center
  • Hosts workshops for juniors and seniors on the college application process
  • Brings guest speakers to talk to parents and students about topics like financial aid
  • Has a library of college and career books that students and parents can borrow
