How Do I See a Counselor?

StudentsCome to the counseling office during your free period, lunch period or before and after school.  
Please feel free to ask one of the secretaries for assistance.  In most instances, they will be able to direct you to the right forms, procedures for classes and college prep information prior to seeing your counselor.  We have an open door policy for students; however, counselors may not always be available for students when they stop by. 
Parents It's best to call the office to arrange an appointment to see your student's counselor.  This ensures appropriate time allocated to your needs.  Stopping by the office could result in long wait times or a counselor not available.
Counseling Information
ICAP (Individualized Career and Academic Plan) The mission of Jeffco Public Schools is to provide a quality education that prepares all children for a successful future. Each student will have an Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) mapping out student's progress toward completing high school successfully and making meaningful career decisions. Creating this plan is a partnership between the student, parents and school staff. Questions regarding this process can be directed to your student's counselor.  To complete this plan, Wheat Ridge High School utilizes the tool Naviance.  You and your student can go the the Naviance website and log on to view the plan.



    CareerWise is an apprenticeship program offered to current Sophomores and Juniors.  Students split their day between work and school, all while learning college credit.  To learn more about the importance of apprenticeships click on:
