“Counseling” is a comprehensive term used to describe all services that help students navigate through high school from initial enrollment to graduation. This includes providing students with an appropriate class schedule each year based on their interests, academic needs, graduation requirements, and post-secondary education and career plans. In addition, school counseling staff will work collaboratively with students, parents, teachers, staff, and administration to ensure that students' academic achievement, career development, social and emotional needs are met.
The school counseling staff has a passion for helping students to develop into well-prepared and goal-oriented young adults!
