4. College & Career Workshops to prepare students for the next steps.
5. Financial Aid guidance for those considering college.

Social & Emotional Support

1. Connecting students to meaningful extracurricular opportunities.
2. Guiding students to consider school/life balance during course selection.
3. Helping students manage stress, so they can perform at their best.

Students are assigned counselors based on the advocacy class. The counselor name is listed on the students schedule printout and the transcript. You can also view who your counselor is by going onto StudentVue, clicking the Course Request tab, and then you will see your counselor in the upper-right hand corner and can send them a message directly. Counselors are often available before school starts, during lunch, after school, or with a pass from a teacher. Students can also send quick messages or questions to their counselor through email.
