Secondary Counseling

Our Secondary Counseling Department addresses students’ academic, career and social/emotional development through direct instruction, individual planning and responsive services. The department also encompasses course selection and scheduling, academic support, personal concerns, and college and post-graduation planning. 

To discuss a question or concern, students should visit the Guidance Office during non-class time unless their counselor has requested otherwise. The time for impromptu visits is during study hall periods. A pass should be obtained from the counseling secretary prior to your visit and shown to your study hall teacher prior to going to the Guidance Office. Students are also encouraged to visit their counselor after dismissal.
