Class of 2022 (Juniors) - Parents and Guardians Please Read

As your 11th grader prepares for their last year of high school, school counselors want to partner with you to help support them with their career goals and educational plans. We are available to meet with your student individually or as a family to discuss your needs and provide information on planning for the future. This may include searching for college programs, exploring career interests, military options, or possibly recovering credits. In order to gain an understanding on how to best support your student, we are requesting that each junior complete the following tasks (assigned in English 11 classes):



Based on your student’s responses, your student’s counselor will follow up with them if requested. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly with any questions. We are excited to work more closely with our juniors and help prepare them for graduation and beyond.
