    The Guidance Office is a resource center for academic, career, and personal development. Call your counselor for class schedule questions, graduation and A-G status, and personal issues.  Students and parents can access their counselor by requesting an appointment and walk in availability before school, at lunch, and after school.
     
    Students are assigned to a counselor on an alphabetical basis.  Except for slight adjustments each year in order to maintain a balance in the counselor-student ratio, a student may look forward to an unbroken relationship with the same counselor for four years.
     
    The range of a counselor's contacts with his or her counselees is all in-inclusive, extending from program changes to referrals to personal counseling.  In conjuction with the parent and student, the major goals of the counseling program are to:
     
    1. Develop a 4-year plan, including options for CTE or dual enrollment
    2. Ensure completion of high school
    3. Prepare for post-graduation choices
    4. Prepare students for eligibility for entrance into the college/university of his or her choice
    5. Assist in the search for scholarships and financial aid
    6. Provide guidance in the personal growth and development of the counselee
     
    Wise decisions made at registration time are of great importance.  Once school begins in August, program changes will only be made by counselor recommendation or administrative necessity.
