The Arlington Memorial High School Guidance Department provides a wide range of services to assist students and families. Students and families should feel free to utilize the Guidance Department’s services regularly.
Academic program, class schedules, placement, tutorial assistance and other matters related to the academic success of each student.
Through the development of a one-to-one, group and classroom relationship with the counselor, it is hoped that the student will gain more self-understanding to cope with problems related to developmental needs (social, emotional and personal) and to vocational and educational activities and interests.
Testing services are provided to help the student learn more about him/herself and to provide information about aptitudes, interests and achievements. Tests include ACT, AP, ASVAB, PSAT, SAT, SBAC, and career interest inventories.
A great deal of information is available in the Guidance Library relative to occupations and careers, post-high school educational opportunities, financial aid and many other topics. Students are encouraged to use these resources and to discuss information with their counselor.
Students may be referred to other individuals or agencies which may help with particular problems such as health, social-emotional, learning disabilities and others.
