Guidance and College Counseling

Recognizing the importance of course selection and long range academic planning, the Guidance Department assumes an active role in the scheduling process by offering assistance to students, advisors, and parents. There is a direct relationship between a student's course sequence throughout high school and their post-secondary options. Course selection during the junior and senior years is especially critical.

Traditionally, 80% or more of Academy students pursue some type of post-secondary education at the bachelor degree, associate degree or technical degree level. In addition, students seeking employment upon graduation must be prepared with entry-level job skills.

Students planning to pursue a bachelor's degree should be enrolled in an accelerated college-prep program, a standard level college preparatory program, or a combination thereof. Those planning to pursue an associate degree should be enrolled in a standard level college preparatory program, and students seeking a technical education should select a combination standard level college preparatory/technical education program. Students preparing for employment immediately after graduation should successfully complete a major concentration in our technical programs.

In addition to academic counseling, the Guidance Department offers a variety of services to assist students to reach their full potential. Personal counseling, aptitude and achievement testing, career education, college and financial aid counseling, are some of the more important functions.

The New England Regional Council:
·         Provide a forum through which College Board members can deliberate on matters of mutual concern.
·         Improve communications across the educational spectrum.
·         Evaluate and promote the use of College Board programs, services and activities.
·         Advise the regional office on educational issues and needs in the region, and regional positions on national issues.
