    What We Do...

    We meet with students to address their academic needs, their personal and social issues, and their post-secondary options, including assistance with college and/or career planning.

    Students are seen on both a walk-in and appointment basis. If the student's counselor is not immediately available, the student will be asked to make an appointment. Students in crisis will be seen immediately.

    Parents and outside agencies are encouraged to call the counseling secretary to set an appointment to meet with a counselor.

    The graduation coach serves students at risk of dropping out of school or not completing their high school education on time. The graduation coach and the counselors work closely together to identify, support, and encourage students to complete high school.

    We look forward to serving student needs!
