Academic Counseling assists the student in making responsible decisions regarding course selections. Counselors interview students who are not achieving their full academic potential in order to assist them. If a student experiences an issue in a particular class, it is the policy of the School Counseling Office that the student, his/her parent, or his/her guardian make contact with the teacher directly to attempt to resolve the issue. If this proves ineffective at resolving the issue the principal is to be contacted along with the school counselor.
In addition to the general academic counseling support offered by the department, Catapult Learning offers academic assistance in mathematics, study strategies, and general academic performance. To inquire about or utilize these services please contact the Director of School Counseling and reference the Catapult Learning Service that interests you.
Career Counseling provides information regarding career exploration. Counselors also help students make responsible decisions regarding vocational choices. Students can access career interest inventories on Naviance and discuss results with their counselors.
