School Counseling Center

Preparation and practice is the key to success. We begin preparing our students for graduation and college entrance exams early. With plenty of support and encouragement, we challenge our students to recognize and capitalize on their unique strengths and talents—so they feel confident and comfortable when it counts.

Graduation Project

Every student will choose a project to complete before graduation. Students may select from the following two areas of interest:

  • Career
  • Community Service

To fulfill this graduation requirement, every student meets with and receives guidance from an assigned faculty advisor.

NCAA & College Bound Students

Student athletes should meet with the school counselor every year to plan their high school schedule. Students must meet certain academic requirements, including core courses, grade point averages, and SAT and ACT scores for initial eligibility.

Schedule Changes

We will permit students who desire to drop or add a class prior to the beginning of each school year, after the initial spring scheduling, and under the following conditions:

  • The student still maintains the required hours of class per week.
  • The student provides a justifiable reason for the change.
  • Parental consent exists.
  • Class membership warrants the change.
  • Class period creates no conflict.
  • The ability of the student to add the course is warranted.
  • The student obtains approval from the teacher and administration to audit a course.

Please discuss schedule changes with the school counselor.

We do not attempt to diagnose or treat students with these problems, but rather, we seek to help students and provide intervention through appropriate referrals and follow-up. Of course, all referrals remain confidential.
