Our Counseling Department seeks to prepare young men from diverse cultural and religious experiences for college and life and is done in a variety of ways:

  • We furnish information on careers, colleges and entrance requirements.
  • We administer a testing program to help the student realistically assess his abilities and interests.
  • We help students make the most effective adjustment to school.
  • We make sure the students plan their courses so that they graduate in a timely fashion.
  • We see each student at least once each year on an individual basis and encourage them to make an appointment to see a counselor whenever they feel the need.
  • We highly encourage parents to make an appointment with us.
  • We offer information nights on financial aid planning, and other pertinent issues.
  • We provide information on summer school, make-up work, and tutoring.
  • We administer the State Assessments.
  • We are a testing site for the ACT.
  • We provide students the opportunity to confidentially discuss personal questions with a counselor or psychologist.
  • We provide information about NCAA Participation for Student-Athletes.
