Freshman Year Through Graduation

Students will be assigned to their counselor based on their homeroom. This counselor will work with them all four years advising them regarding their schedules, monitoring academic progress, helping with college applications, and providing assistance with personal concerns.

The Counseling Office uses Family Connection, an interactive college planning resource, to help students prepare for college and careers.
