College & Career Center!

The College and Career Center has many valuable resources for students and parents. In addition, students are welcome anytime for drop-in or one-on-one scheduled appointments to discuss educational goals, explore majors, and discuss the entire college planning process through to graduation.

Resources and Services

  • College Representative Visits: Over 150 Admission Representatives from a variety of college and universities visit our students at Dougherty each year.  All visits are posted in Naviance.  Students need to get a pass signed by their teacher in order to miss class. Visit the "College Visits" tab for more information. This year all college visits will be conducted virtually after school. 
  • Grade Level College Planning Workshops: Throughout the year, students are able to attend workshops to learn more about what they should be doing to prepare for college: creating the "best fit" college list, narrowing the college list, essay-brainstorming, scholarships/financial aid, PSAT score interpretation, resume/interview, career meet-ups, and more.
  • Admissions Testing Information: Students are often times confused about which tests are recommended (or required) for admissions.  There are a variety of materials available to assist students in registering and preparing to take the exams.
  • Monthly Parent College Information Sessions- Topics vary by month; open to suggestions.
  • Other College Events: Throughout the year, the College and Career Center hosts or co-hosts college-related events for both students and parents such as Financial Aid Night, College Admissions Case Study, SRVUSD College Night, and college panels.
