The purpose of Academic Counseling is to provide students with information and guidance regarding their educational needs. We help facilitate communication between the school and parents, monitor student progress, advise on class placement and assist in scheduling. The Guidance Department encourages students to understand the relationship of academics to the world of work, to their lives at home and to the community. Our goal is to help students acquire the knowledge and skills that contribute to effective life-long learning.
