Additional Counseling Services:

The Counseling and Career Centers maintain an extensive library of current college catalogs and directories for student use through the centers. Information on private schools, military academies, vocational schools, and summer programs is available. The Counseling Center also provides information on how to register for college testing programs, how to apply to colleges and for financial aid. Our counselors hold a College Night every year.

The Career Center provides a library of occupational and vocational materials where students can explore career choices through the use of audio-visual materials, career testing, and a wide variety of printed material. College representatives, military recruiters, and representatives from various occupational areas are scheduled throughout the year to speak with interested students.

Regional Occupational Program (ROP) information is also available in the Career Center.

Transcripts and Records:

College applications and job applications sometimes require that a student send a copy of their school grade record. These records may be obtained from the school registrar. Students can request that records be sent to another school by completing a transcript request form. A request to send records for jobs, scholarship programs, and other special programs will require that a “release of records” form be signed by the parent or guardian. If the student is eighteen years of age, he/she may sign the release form.

Scholarship and Financial Aid:

Information on college scholarships and financial aid programs are available through the Counseling Center. Seniors should obtain a Scholarship Handbook by October. Seniors and their parents are strongly encouraged to attend Financial Aid Night. Our Senior Scholarship Awards Assembly is held in May.

Psychological Services:

The services of the school psychologist are available to students and their parents through the District Office. Students can request an appointment to see a psychologist through the Counseling Center. Our school psychologist is available to attend student study team meetings.
