The Counseling Department collaborates with students, families, teachers, administrators, and other educational partners to meet the academic, social-emotional, career, and college needs of our students.

Counselors foster unique relationships with students as a vehicle to provide individualized counseling, supportive school-wide programs, and an extensive social-emotional and college readiness curriculum so they reach their highest academic and personal potential.


Counselors work closely with teachers and receive academic ineligibility reports to monitor student performance. Counselors also work with students to create four-year academic plans and set academic goals.


School counselors are available to help students with any difficulty, big or small. Counselors work closely with students, parents, teachers and outside counselors to best support a student’s needs.


Over the course of four years, school counselors work with students on long-term college and career planning. Students work with the College Counselor beginning the second semester of junior year.
