New policy for signing up for college visits

All college visits to LNHS will be listed in Naviance. Naviance is accessible to students on their laptops through LaunchPad.  

Please locate the list of colleges visiting Lake Nona HS in the "Colleges" tab.   Look in the "My Colleges" section for the list of upcoming college visits to LNHS.  Once you find a visit you would like to attend, select "sign up" for the visits you would like to attend.  You must sign up as soon as possible for the visits you are interested in attending and no later than the day before the visit.  Most visits are limited to the first 40 students. 

Lists of students attending the visit will be pulled the day prior to the visit and will be emailed to teachers.  Your name must be on the list in order to attend.

Students must check in with their teachers prior to coming for the visit and are responsible for making up any missed work.  Teachers must approve students missing class to attend the visit.  

College visits are only open to juniors and seniors.
