College Visits

College admissions representatives visits occur each fall.  Seniors can find the date, time, location and sign up for the visits through their personal Naviance Account.

College visits will be held both in school and after school virtually at the Arlington Public School’s district level. For virtual visits; Arlington high schools (Arlington Career Center, Arlington Community High School, Wakefield, Washington-Liberty, Yorktown, New Directions, Langston and H-B Woodlawn Program) can participate in the virtual visits. Due to the limited time available for our counselors to meet with students and families this year, we anticipate that APS staff will not be present in most of these meetings. Typically the college representative conducts the meeting, introducing the college, the admission process and then he or she will take student questions.  The in-school and virtual college visits are for students only, as the purpose of these opportunities is for students to interact with the representative. Dates, times, locations, and our sign-up system can be found in the Naviance student’s account, under College>College Visits.
