Student Services

There are a variety of times when counselors meet with students. In addition to the scheduled times listed below, we meet with students individually throughout the year on an as needed basis. We provide individual personal, social/emotional, and academic counseling throughout the entire academic school year.

Freshman:

• Counselors meet in small groups to go over keys to being successful in high school and graduation requirements.
• Students meet with counselors in homeroom to discuss course registration and academic standing.

Sophomores:

• Counselors meet with 10th grades students to review results of the Pre-ACT and career assessment. 
• Counselors meet with students to review the resources available in the Career Center and Counseling Office as they relate to college and career exploration.
• Counselors give classroom presentations about registration and academic planning.


Juniors:

• Interested students may take the PSAT exam which is essentially a practice SAT exam. It follows a similar format as the SAT as it measures verbal, math and writing skills. There are three reasons why a junior may choose to take the PSAT:

1. The students plans on taking the SAT and would like a formal practice test

2. The student would like to try and qualify for the National Merit Scholarship

3. If the students’ parent/guardian work for a select group of companies (example; Jennie-O Turkey store), that student may qualify for additional scholarship opportunities offered by these companies.

• Counselors meet with students individually during the spring semester to discuss career searches, the college application process, and testing options including ACT, SAT and ACCUPLACER. Students receive resources containing information and timelines to assist them with their post high school planning. 

• Counselors give classroom presentations about registration and academic planning.

• Students meet with counselors in homeroom to discuss course registration and academic standing.

Seniors:
• Seniors meet with the Counseling and Career Center staff to discuss a wide range of topics including:

1. Credit requirements/GPA and class rank

2. College application process
3. Scholarship application process
4. College visits
5. Career Center resources
6. National College Fair
7. Letters of recommendation



After this meeting, students can meet with their counselors on an individual basis. Students are encouraged to meet with their counselors as often as necessary. We meet with students to help them organize their application materials, proof essays and applications, and write letters of recommendation. We also brainstorm with students about possible colleges or programs. We are available and qualified to help students in every aspect of this journey.

Stop by the counseling office before/after school or during lunch/homeroom to make an appointment!‚Äč
