A student may request an appointment with the counselor by a verbal or written request. Students must have permission from their classroom teacher to see the counselor. An emergency situation (a student is a threat to himself/herself or someone else, a personal crisis such as illness or death in the family) does not warrant a formal request. All students are encouraged to visit the counselor’s office to discuss areas of concern. The counselor will meet with all students in the manner of individual sessions, small group sessions and/or classroom visits. The signing of the handbook acknowledgment form gives permission for the counselor to meet with a student as well as refer any student experiencing issues to counseling outside of the school setting.
A parent/guardian may request a conference with the counselor to discuss their student’s personal needs or concerns. In fact, parents are strongly encouraged to contact the counselor as any assistance is greatly appreciated in helping your student achieve their personal potential.
ALL requests for student transcripts must be made through the counselor’s office. A completed transcript request form must be completely filled out for EACH prospective college, university, employer or organization requesting the transcript.
Transcript Request Form **Official transcripts must be mailed directly from the school with a seal and the head of school's signature.
The 2018/19 FAFSA will be available on October 1, 2017, and will require financial information from the student’s/parent’s 2016 Income Tax Returns. Federal Student Aid is awarded on a first-come-first-served basis so your students need to apply early.
FSA ID - Each senior and one parent should create an FSA ID prior to filing the FAFSA. This will serve as their electronic signatures for FAFSA submission. This can be done as soon as students arrive back to school.
