The Guidance Department offers services designed to give the individual student systematic assistance with academic, personal/social, and career development needs.
The Guidance Department is concerned with each student as an individual. There are a variety of issues that confront high school students, and counselors are available to offer help and support.
Counselors attempt to obtain a complete understanding of each student, including interests, abilities and achievements. Through advisement, evaluation of academic records, and an organized program of standardized testing, the counselor is better able to assess students' individual needs and goals.
Students can obtain educational and occupational information in the Guidance Office to help them in choosing career goals. Catalogs of colleges, nursing schools, technical institutes, military programs, and many other schools of advanced training are available, as well as standardized testing materials and scholarship information. For the most up-to-date information, students are encouraged to check the various web sites for colleges, programs, and testing.
The Guidance Department wants to help each student, so students should take advantage of every opportunity to meet with their counselor.
