Counseling & Guidance
The Ceres High School Counseling Department is excited to welcome students and parents for a brand new school year! Let’s work together to make this a wonderful and memorable year at Ceres High School. The purpose of our team is to support students and families at every grade level. We strive to provide academic, college/career, and personal/emotional support to each student. We also work with Student Support Specialists (SSS) who aim to further support students socially and emotionally.

What does College and Career Ready mean?
College Ready-A College Ready student is an academically prepared student, ready for post-secondary education or training without the need for remedial coursework. Whether you are pursuing a four-year degree or studying for a skilled trade license, being ready means having the reading, writing, mathematics, social, and cognitive skills to qualify for and succeed in the academic program of your choice.
Career Ready-A Career Ready student possesses both the necessary knowledge and technical skills needed for employment in their desired career field. For example, a student who is ready to become a teacher not only possesses knowledge of education policy, but also possesses all required certifications required to become a teacher.
Students are expected to attend live Zoom video sessions daily for each period - (camera on is encouraged) - in order to be marked present.
If students do not attend the live Zoom sessions, they will be marked absent for that class period.
Parents are the only people that can clear absences. Students may not clear their own absences.
Parents can call our attendance office at 556-1920.
