Services Available through the Counseling Center

One of the Counseling Center’s main goals is to facilitate your student’s high school years to make the experience as successful as possible. Students meet with their counselor by parent, teacher, administrator or self-referral. Your student’s counselor is available to help on many different fronts!

Academic Support - Counselors meet with students to help them select courses that meet both graduation requirements and expand on their personal interests. We also work with students who are struggling in academics by reviewing more efficient study habits and organizational skills. For students whose academic life is sometimes a little too hectic, we are happy to share some stress and time management techniques. It isn’t always easy to balance courses, activities, leadership roles, athletics, employment, and family commitments!

Personal/Social Concerns - Counselors also work with students who are dealing with relationship issues, personal concerns, academic or behavioral difficulties, or emergency situations. Counseling is short term, skill-based, and goal-oriented. We can also provide referrals to other professional resources such as mental health professionals, social services, special school programs, or juvenile services.

College & Post-High School Planning - Most students take advantage of the wealth of information that is available from the Counseling Center. We offer college advising, testing, scholarship and financial aid information. Our comprehensive guidance program provides classroom presentations and personal meetings; we support students in their entire application process from completing applications and securing recommendations to writing their personal statements and resumes. We also have information on two-year community colleges, apprenticeship programs, vocational and specialty colleges as well as the military.
