Wake Forest High School

Student Services

School counselors are available to support the academic, social-emotional, and college/career goals of all students. As such, there may be times when the academic counselor or SAP Coordinator need to connect with individual students or groups of students to provide resources or to address specific questions / concerns. All communication with students is in accordance with district policies and guidelines.
