Academic, College  &
Career Counseling

Our credentialed school counselors will evaluate transcripts from previous high schools and map out a plan for you to finish your high school diploma or GED. They can also help you to explore your interests, set career goals, and even assist with locating a school or training program that offers the major or classes you are looking for. 

When supporting you with your college goals, our counselors work in collaboration with our community college partners to assist you in completing college applications, filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and to get you ready to register for college coursework.
