Becoming The Next Generation

Empowering students to empower themselves.

WELCOME!

Through guidance and opportunities for personal growth, students are supported in their transition from adolescence into young adulthood.  Counselors work collaboratively with students, families, teachers, and administrators to facilitate student wellbeing and success.

Additionally, they work closely with students through the college exploration and application process. 

At each grade level, counselors meet with students individually and in group settings to provide emotional support and information relevant to academic planning, standardized testing, career exploration and college readiness.

Current students and families, please log in for more grade specific information and resources.
