The Academic Dean ensures that all Rivers students are college ready. This includes helping them with course selections, ensuring that they meet graduation requirements and informing them of the ACT and SAT testing dates. For the college admission process, the academic Dean will meet with each senior to answer questions they may have. At this time, the student will receive information regarding the application process, including the Common Application, in and out of state applications, teacher recommendations, guidance counselor recommendations, and sending ACT and SAT scores. After a student graduates, the registrar will send final official transcripts to colleges of choice through Parchment Exchange Services.
