Student Success Plans

School Counselors coordinate and manage academic, career, and social-emotional support services for each student to promote school success. 

A Student Success Plan is an individualized plan created by each student in collaboration with their school counselor, classroom teachers, faculty members who may act as their monitor, advisor or mentor, as well as parents / guardians.  Student Success Plans are created to address academic development, career development, and social / emotional / physical development. 

The SSP is designed to help every student actively plan for their future, and to achieve their post high school educational and career goals. The SSP begins in the 9th grade and continues through 12th grade.  Each student is provided support and assistance in setting goals for social, physical and academic growth, meeting rigorous learning expectations in the classroom, and exploring post high school education and career interests.

In each grade level, students are presented with a variety of activities, programs and services intended to build the 21st century capacities and learning expectations outlined in The Vision of the Graduate.

McGill-Toolen High School utilizes Naviance Student, a web-based service designed especially for students and parents to organize and document many of  the tasks related to Student Success Plans.  Naviance is a comprehensive web site that you can use to help in making decisions about colleges and careers.  We use Naviance in the Guidance Offices to track and analyze data about our students’ college and career plans.  Naviance will allow students to:

  • Get involved in the planning and advising process - Build a resume, complete on-line surveys, and manage timelines and deadlines for making decisions about colleges and careers.
  • Research colleges - Compare GPA, standardized test scores, and other statistics to actual historical data from students who have already applied from our high school.
