Welcome to the Counseling Department!
The Counseling Department provides academic, career, and personal/social support to all students.
The mission of the secondary level counseling departments is to provide a comprehensive school counseling program that addresses the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students through a collaborative effort between the home, school, and community. The ultimate objective it to prepare students to be productive, well-rounded, informed, and responsible contributing members of society.
School counselors are professional school advocates who provide support to maximize student potential and achievement. In partnership with other educators, families, and the community, school counselors facilitate a support system to ensure all students have access to the tools enabling them to become responsible and productive citizens.

Virtual Counseling Services
Virtual counseling appointments are available for students who would like a face-to-face meeting with their school counselor using Microsoft Teams during regular school hours. The purpose of virtual counseling is to provide brief academic, career, and social/emotional supports to your child. Whether your child needs a simple check-in or in-the-moment coping strategies, we are here to help! If you would like to set up a virtual counseling appointment, please email your school counselor or send them a message on Schoology. The school counselor will get back to you with available appointment times and instructions on using Microsoft Teams.
Virtual counseling appointments are not intended for emergency situations. For emergency supports please read the Counseling Emergency Services document.
All scholarship-related questions must be directed to Mrs. Julie Hersch, Career Counselor.
We will continue to process transcript requests as normal. To request a transcript, follow the normal procedure through Parchment. If you have questions or need assistance, please email Mrs. Lucy Spaeth, Office Assistant. Please allow two school days for transcript requests to be processed.
