The Guidance Department assists all students in understanding themselves and the world around them. By helping students assess their abilities, aptitudes and interests, The Guidance Department helps them make the best possible personal and educational choices. Realistic goal setting and personal social development are pivotal aspects of the program. The Department also strives, through publications and meetings, to reach out to the parents and community with information and timely news. The Department is responsible for individual counseling, group guidance, group counseling and outside counseling. Parental interaction is essential and welcomed by The Guidance Department.
Guidance classes for all final years keep students on track personally and academically. Students meet weekly in small groups and regularly one-on-one with a counselor. Counselors are always available to assist students throughout the day.
In junior school years, guidance focuses on the adjustment to high school, time management, and work habits. In the Junior and Senior years, guidance classes focus almost exclusively on preparation and placement. Each student works closely with her guidance counselor in weekly meetings to set goals for his future studies.
