Counseling Department » Welcome

Welcome

Welcome to the Academic Counseling Department. We assist 9th-12th grade students (and their parents) in the areas of academic and personal success. The Academic Counselors have an open door policy for students and parents.
 
  • The freshman year is an exciting year filled with lots of change and personal growth. During this year counselors will meet with each freshman to discuss their class schedule, grades on PowerSchool, college entrance requirements and future goals after high school. The guidance department begins the year with a presentation during orientation which focuses on graduation requirements, college admissions, standardized testing and general study skills.
  • During sophomore year it's crucial to continue to strive toward academic excellence in preparation for college readiness.  Challenging course work, standardized testing, and researching prospective colleges will all play an important role during the upcoming year.
  • The junior year is often pivotal for students in their attempt to meet graduation requirements and college eligibility.
  • Senior year is a time to plan for post-graduation, whether it be a 2-year college, 4-year university, the military, or work.  It is very important to meet all deadlines for applications and financial aid.
 
We encourage you to contact your child's counselor anytime this year for further assistance.
