By virtue of the first letter of your last name, you have been assigned to a person called a School Counselor. Perhaps you visited your counselor for a schedule change or for information on the SATs, but the counseling office can provide you with so much more. Here are several questions and concerns of 9th-12th grade students, and how your School Counselor can help.

  • How do I make an appointment?

  • I hate the elective I registered for last year. What can I do?

  • I’m really struggling in my math class. Can you help?

  • How do I stay on track and organized as I apply to schools?

  • I’m the first in my family to go to college (or I’m the oldest child in my family), and I have no idea where or how to start the process.

  • Can you help me choose a college?

  • I have no idea what to select as my major!

  • Do I qualify for any scholarships?

  • I don’t want to go to college, but I’m not sure what careers might be right for me.

  • I want to serve in the Army/Navy/Air Force/Coast guard. What do I do?

  • I got my test scores back, and I have no clue what they mean.

  • How do I pay for college?

  • Can I talk to my counselor about personal issues?

  • Will my counselor share everything I say to my teachers and/or my parents?
