• Career and College Center

     

    As an arm of the Counseling Department of Upper Darby High School, the Career and College Center is dedicated to serving the student body in two primary areas: career counseling and college counseling. We provide 1-on-1 and small group counseling opportunities, as needed, to augment the grade level Naviance lessons that all students and parents/guardians have access to their Naviance account provided by the UDSD.

     

    Weekly, College Representatives host student visits which are advertised in Naviance and students can sign up to attend. We also host 3 FAFSA/PHEAA evening workshops yearly to assist families with federal and state aid applications.

     

    Naviance is a web-based platform that provides students with a variety of features, including college research/matching tools, career assessment/ personality tests, and surveys to help students connect what they are doing in school to what they would like to do once they graduate. Naviance provides additional functionality to school counselors to track the progress of students, communicate and collaborate with students and families.  Additionally, Naviance’s integration with "The Common Application" facilitates the submission of college applications, as well as online submission of transcripts, school forms and recommendations. Students and families can use Naviance as the primary resource tool to research post graduation options and choices.
