Functions of the Guidance Department

The work of the department not only involves those students still in school, but also past graduates and students who have left school for any reason.

Educational Guidance Helps students plan their subjects while in high school and to develop their future educational goals such as choice of college, business school, technical school, school of nursing, beautician's school, etc. Scholarship information and testing programs are also included in this phase.
Vocational Guidance Includes aiding students to make choices concerning careers by helping them gather information and analyze alternatives regarding areas of work in which they show interest and aptitude.
Personal Counseling Is done with those students who voluntarily come for this purpose. This is not an attempt to take over the duties or prerogatives of the parent or other adult close to the student. It is the offering of an attitude of acceptance and understanding to a student who wishes to discuss his/her problems.
Administrative Duties Include special activities which have a close bearing on the other work of the department such as registration and scheduling procedures, orientation of Freshmen, and college admissions processing.


Students One conference with each student during each semester will be arranged to discuss such topics as educational and vocational plans.

Conferences can be scheduled during study hall, before school, after school, or noon hour by making an appointment with the counselor.

Students are encouraged to visit the Guidance Office. However, a pass from the counselor is necessary in order to leave class for an appointment in the Guidance Office.
Parents Parental interviews are welcome. If, at any time, there are questions concerning a student's educational or vocational plans, please call the counselor at school and make an appointment, as this will save time.
