Meet your College Advisor!
Hey, NCHS! My name is Mr. Donohue, and I am your college adviser for the next two years. I graduated from UVA in 2019 with a degree in Environmental Science & Anthropology. I'm here to help with any questions you may have about life after high school. Together, we can navigate SAT/ACT registration, the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), personal essays, or even career planning. Come see me in the School Counseling office!
Follow me on Twitter and Instagram @NCHSAdviser and "like" my "Governors for Success" Facebook page for updates, tips, and tricks. Go, Governors!
Since 2006, Nelson County High School has been a partner with the Virginia College Advising Corps (formerly known as the University of Virginia's College Guide Program). NCHS has a College Adviser working directly alongside the School Counselors to prepare Nelson students for the next step in their academic careers.
The College Advisor does the following:
* Work with grades 9-12 to help create plans for life after high school.
* Help students prepare and register for the SAT and ACT, provide fee waivers for those who qualify.
* Help students understand what the SAT and ACT scores mean in terms of college readiness and school choice.
* Answer any questions regarding college applications.
* Read and review your essays for college and scholarships.
* Assist with the financial aid process and facilitate FAFSA completion events.
* Hold parent meetings.
