Counseling services are available to students, parents, and faculty both through structured programs and on an as-needed basis. All students and parents are encouraged to meet with their counselor when the need arises.
School Counseling services include:
Ninth graders meet with counselors in the fall to learn about guidance services and to discuss concerns or questions about high school. Sophomores meet with their counselors during the fall and winter to learn about career opportunities, career decision making and junior and senior year school opportunities. Juniors meet in the spring for college and post high school planning. Seniors meet in the fall to go over college and future plans. The department organizes an orientation for new students, works with middle schools to facilitate the transition to high school and assists with career and college planning and course registration and selection.
As Needed Services
In addition to the above regularly scheduled activities, teachers, parents, and administrators frequently refer individual students with academic or personal difficulties to a counselor.
Counselors regularly review academic progress, and students in academic difficulty are invited to meet with their counselor to discuss problems and potential resolutions. Staffings with teachers, parents, and students are arranged when needed. A staffing is an opportunity for teachers and parents to share concerns and determine appropriate courses of action.
