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) ans 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, 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 ans 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.
This service aids students in new educational experiences - learning what is expected of them and what resources are available to them.
