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, 90% 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.
In addition to academic counseling, the Guidance Department offers a variety of services to assist students to reach their full potential. Personal counseling, educational testing, career education, college and financial aid counseling, are some of the more important functions.
