WHAT CAN COUNSELORS ASSIST WITH?
A comprehensive high school counseling/guidance program provides the following services to students and families:
Academic Planning: We help students with goal-setting, academic planning and interventions, credit recovery, college admission requirements, and exploring the variety of available programs in high school: Dual credit in high school, including Running Start, College in the High School, Advanced Placement and CTE College credit.
Post-High School Planning: We help students develop & solidify a plan for after graduation, taking the necessary steps to make that happen; taking advantage of opportunities, college & career planning, college admissions, financial aid and scholarships to fund their plans, professional/tech schools, ASVAB, apprenticeship programs and more.
Personal/Social Wellness: We facilitate students with overcoming obstacles to be successful in school. All Guidance Counselors have Master's Degrees and have specialized skills to support with the unique developmental needs of teenagers. The focus is on academic guidance and support, such as problem solving, conflict resolution, coping strategies, time management, testing anxiety.
