Connecting Students and Resources
The Guidance and Counseling Department offers numerous services to promote student achievement. It is our top priority to help every child meet his/her college and career goals, including academic planning for college. We want our students to thrive in safe learning environments so that they can develop productive work habits in the classroom and become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners.

Students in grade 10 – 12 receive an updated high school transcript each fall from their guidance counselor. Students should keep this copy handy throughout the school year for their needs. Seniors will receive a seven semester transcript after the semester one grades are checked. Current students should see their guidance counselor for any questions about their transcript.
