Counseling

The Counseling Department provides students with career and life choice advice. The counseling staff assists students in developing a realistic appraisal of their abilities, achievements, interests and values. To help in career choices we maintain a library of catalogs and technical information including post-secondary education opportunities through the baccalaureate level.

The Department of School Counseling is pleased to share our new website with you!
Here you will be able to find information about scholarships, upcoming events, college planning, and more! We will be updating the page frequently so be sure to check back often.”
