Ask an NHS Counselor
The Guidance Program at Northbridge High School helps you to prepare for higher education and meaningful employment. Guidance Counselors reinforce the personal and social skills needed for the many responsibilities of citizenship and adulthood. They provide a wide range of services including course selection and program planning, college choice/application, career planning, decision-making, student advocacy and character education. Counselors will see you individually, in small groups, and in the classroom. They host and facilitate parent workshops in college admission and financial aid, are an integral part of student service programs and school initiatives, and they are an important resource for teachers, parents, and the school administration. Guidance Counselors help you to gain personal independence and to take responsibility. They help you to set appropriate goals, to solve problems, and to make good decisions. You will work with your counselors on personal, social/emotional, education, and career issues.
