The Guidance Department is a valuable resource for students and parents. Each student is assigned a counselor to assist with academic and personal matters. Counselors help students with course selection, scheduling, standardized testing, and deficiencies.

Another important area addressed by the Guidance Department is College Exploration and Planning. Using Student/Parent meetings, an annual college fair, college representatives scheduled during the school day, newsletters, and individual appointments, as well as Naviance - department members support students and families with college selection, application, financial aid and scholarships.

Students and parents often want to discuss personal, developmental, or social matters with a concerned adult. The guidance counselor performs this role by providing a forum for brainstorming, exploring options, mediation or sympathetic listening. When appropriate or requested, counselors identify appropriate community resources for further assistance.
