High School

The School Counseling Program provides students and families with a wide range of activities, lessons, and events to promote academic success, college and career readiness, and social/emotional development.  Our annual calendar reflects the depth and scope of the program.   There are important elements which are not specific calendar events and are not on the calendar such as Advising lessons, small groups, new student orientation, crisis support and intervention, planning meetings, course selection, grade level seminars, SAT preparation, independent coursework, career exploration, internships, job shadowing, college visits, college and scholarship applications, and many others.
