MHS Counseling Department
Creating a better future, one student at a time.
Coming soon in the 2020-21 school year.
College Day Visits
Juniors and Seniors are allowed two (2) school days, per year to visit colleges, universities and/or trade schools. All college visits must be pre-approved to be considered an excused College Day Visit.
At least one (1) week prior to the college visit the student must:
- Make prior arrangements with the college Admission's Office.
- Go by the attendance office and request a "College Day Visitation" form.
- Obtain all required MHS signatures on the "College Day Visitation" form and return to Mrs. Girman or Mrs Heit
During the college visit the student must obtain a signed letter (on college letterhead) stating the student's name and date of visit. Upon returning to MHS the student must turn in the signed letter to Mrs. Girman or Mrs. Heit for the absence to count as a college visit.
Community Service Hours Available
All Midlothian High School students must complete at least 10 hours of community service over their high school career. This community service is a graduation requirement for Midlothian Independent School District. The program is administered through social studies and details are explained in the community service program flyer and service form.
Requesting a Transcript
You may pickup a transcript form from Mrs. Oliver in the College/Career Center or complete the online forms linked below. Most college/universities prefer the transcript to go electronically, however, some may need it to be mailed by the student.
Once the request has been turned in, please allow for a few days for processing. Notice that there are several options, and that a parent signature is required, if the student is under 18.
Students have access to a web-based college and career readiness tool called Naviance. This platform allows students to explore interests, research post-secondary options, and set personalized goals. Throughout the year, students will be assigned tasks in Naviance that can be completed at school or at home on their own time. Tasks will consist of surveys, college searching, career interest exploration, resume building and goal-setting. These tasks will show on the student's dashboard once they are logged in. We encourage parents to partner with their student and engage in conversations related to specific interests and post-secondary plans.
