Senior High School Counseling Center

Students preparing for graduation ceremonyThe purpose of this site is to provide you with updated information pertaining to academic requirements, post-secondary planning, standardized testing information, important upcoming dates, information links, and various other resources.

It is important for you to give some thought to your direction and individual goals.  What you want to achieve in the future will, in most cases, determine the courses and activities you choose while in high school.  The selection of courses should be carefully thought out from year to year, giving consideration to your interests, abilities, and future plans.  Your counselor is one person who can help you sort out all possibilities and aid you in making both education and career decisions.  There is extensive information in the guidance office and online to aid you in your decision-making process.
