Kempsville High College Visits

Many colleges and universities will be sending representatives to Kempsville High School and we welcome students to come meet with as many of the admissions counselors as they would like. However, they will need to place their name(s) on the sign up sheets in the "college visit" binder in the guidance department. Students should sign up at least 24 hours prior to the arrival of the specific admissions counselor that they would like to meet with. On the day of the visits, passes will be distributed to the students allowing them to come to our department for the informational sessions with the requested colleges or universities.

Please visit the guidance office for more information.

Parking Permits

Parking Pass Parking privileges are available to all students with a verified Virginia Driver's license and proof of vehicle insurance.
