Guidance Overview

  • Each incoming freshman class is divided alphabetically into five groups, with each group assigned to a counselor. Counselors work directly with that group of students from the beginning of their freshman year through graduation. Our goal is to provide each and every student with comprehensive guidance and counseling that reflects their individual needs, supporting students to achieve their academic and personal goals. Throughout the year, counselors meet with students individually, in small groups and in the classroom to assist with:

    • Academic advising including course selection, scheduling, and academic support (see here for more information on academic support available in school)
    • Social and emotional counseling including peer relationships, stress management, conflict resolution and crisis intervention
    • Career exploration using tools on Naviance as well as community resources
    • Post-secondary planning, beginning with the initial search through the application and acceptance process

    For a more comprehensive explanation of our guidance curriculum, please see our curriculum overview. The guidance department also hosts evening programs for students and parents over the course of the school year. Click here for a complete description of the 2017-18 evening events.

    To discuss a question or concern, or to schedule an appointment, students and families can contact their counselor directly by phone or email.
