Counseling Department

The counseling department promotes the personal/social, career, and academic growth and development of all students. The goal of our counseling program is to engage parents, teachers, administrators, students and community partners in order to meet the holistic needs of all students. The designated class counselors remain with students throughout their high school career focusing on personal advisement and academic counseling. Each year, individual academic planning meetings are held with every student to review their four year plans and to complete course requests for the upcoming year. In addition, our college counselor is available to students for career and college exploration.
