Post-Secondary Planning, Career, Interests and More

Throughout a student's high school experience, they can expect their counselor and their advisor to help them to get to work on an Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP). In addition, students will work on course selection during advisory to help them reach their post-high school goals. School counselors are also here to help with post-secondary planning. Guidance is given to each student to help them achieve to their fullest potential whether it be college, career, or trade school.  Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to take the "Post Secondary Research" class with one of our counselors.
