Need another reason to celebrate National School Counseling Week?
A recent NACAC study confirmed that students who meet one-on-one with a school counselor are significantly more likely to attend college and apply for federal financial aid.
Study findings show that 12th graders who talked about their future plans with a school counselor were:
- Seven times more likely to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
- Three times more likely to attend college
- Two times more likely to attend a bachelor’s degree program
Delve into the data and use a PowerPoint presentation to share key findings.
