Welcome back LVA students and families!
Hello! My name is Ms.Stacy Miller, and I would like to invite you to the Student Success Center, LVA’s newest student support service! After 23 years as an English teacher here at LVA, I am excited to transition into my new role as your College & Career Coordinator, where I can offer my expertise in college essay writing and revision, application processes, and resume building, among many other topics.
While your time in high school will help you to prepare for life post-graduation, I am here to help you discover and design your pathway to that life through planning for college, career exploration (ex: military service), or technical training so that you can reach your goals and find happiness and success.
I can help you explore your career interests, identify your personal strengths and connect you to resources to enhance college acceptance results. Additionally, if you are interested in internship opportunities, on-campus summer fellowships, or joining the workforce during or post-high school, I can guide you so that you can experience positive employability outcomes.
Please stop by the Student Success Center to visit with Ms. Miller and routinely revisit our webpage to take advantage of the many guidance opportunities.
You can also make an appointment with me by emailing my secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the office at 702-799-7800 Ext: 4310.
We will also be using the Remind app (@c9f363) for College and Career-related information.
I look forward to an incredible year of exploration and growth as we work together to ensure your high school experience prepares you for post-secondary opportunities!!
Colleges & Universities
Use this link to see a list of the many private and public colleges that have agreed to accept a standard application form, known as the "Common Application" or "Common App." Hundreds of private and public colleges accept the Common Application. Be sure to check that you have completed each portion of the application, including possible supplemental questions that specific colleges might require, in addition to the essays.
Scholarships are gifts. They don't need to be repaid. There are thousands of them, offered by schools, employers, individuals, private companies, nonprofits, communities, religious groups, and professional and social organizations. A scholarship is an award of financial aid for a student to further their education. Scholarships are awarded on various criteria usually reflecting the values and purposes of the donor or founder of the award. Please visit your counselor or stop by the Student Success Center if you have any questions regarding scholarships. Also, please revisit the Student Success Center webpage for available scholarships throughout the year.

Naviance Family Connection
One of your most powerful tools will be Naviance Family Connection. All Students will be registered for Naviance Family Connection at the beginning of the school year during their freshman year. Make sure to ask your child for his/her username (his/her email address) and password (student ID#) to gain access, as this account is meant to be shared as a family. College-related information and announcements are often sent via email through Naviance. If you are a parent and would like to receive the same email announcements that students get, you may add yourself as a parent on your student's profile page in Naviance
