The Counseling Center is staffed by counselors who care about students’ needs, assists with educational planning, home, school and/or social concerns, career information, interpretation of test scores, or other issues students would like to discuss. Each student is assigned to a counselor at the beginning of the year. All students will be able to work with their counselor until graduation. Counselors are available before school, after school and by appointment. To see a counselor, students should make an appointment with their counselor before school, after school or during lunch.
Since the counselors respect class time, students should not ask for or be given passes to the Counseling Center. The appointment procedure (for both students and parents) assures uninterrupted time for a conference, cuts down on classroom interruptions and prevents wasted time waiting to see a counselor. The Counseling Center has extensive information on colleges, careers, and testing schedules, SAT, ACT, PSAT, and the High School Proficiency Exam. Students are encouraged to visit the Counseling Center and take advantage of the many resources that are available.
