College and Career Center

We ensure every student who graduates from Nonnewaug High School leaves with a plan.

The Counseling Department’s College and Career Resource Center provides resources and programs aimed at helping students better understand their strengths, interests, and future career aspirations. The CCRC houses extensive college and university information in concurrence with our Naviance program, a research and organizational tool for college and career exploration.

The staff consults with students and parents regarding colleges and careers, as well as assisting with various applications and processes, including: Common App, FAFSA, SAT, and ACT testing. The CCRC boasts a highly developed College Admission Representatives program and hosts representatives from over 100 colleges, universities, and technical schools; as well as the military branches. In addition, on-site acceptance days, which afford qualified students the opportunity to apply and earn acceptance to schools, bring the admissions process here to students! The School Counseling Department also takes groups to explore local educational and vocational opportunities, and students attend the National College Fair in Hartford, which hosts over 400 colleges.
