College Counseling

NAVIANCE

Archbishop Carroll High School uses Naviance Student as part of its commitment to its counseling program. Naviance Student is an online college and career planning system funded by ACHS providing course planning, career assessments, and career and college research. It is the tool by which all seniors complete the college application process and all pertinent documents (letters of recommendation, transcripts, school reports) are distributed. Student accounts are established upon enrollment, and updated yearly.

Students are required to maintain and regularly log into their accounts from 9th through 12th grade.

PLACEMENT 

All courses offered at Archbishop Carroll High School are college preparatory. A student is placed in courses best suited to his/her needs. Archbishop Carroll High School offers Honors courses in core disciplines. Placement is determined by the faculty, guidance department, and principal. 

SCHEDULE CHANGES 

Students are given access to their class schedule in early August via MyBackPack. There is an add/drop period at the beginning of the course during which schedule adjustments can be made. After this period, student schedule changes will be made only through the counseling office based on placement concerns. 

An electronic add/drop form must be submitted and approved by the Principal within the first two weeks of class. Any change made following the add/drop period for a reason other than placement as determined by the school

will result in the use of the WP or WF grades on the transcript to denote that the student opted to withdraw. Course descriptions are available online at www.achsdc.org and via the course catalog in Naviance Student.
