Niwot Counseling

Meet the NHS Counseling Department

What is our role?

Niwot High Counselors strive to enhance and enrich the learning experience of all students through the areas of academics, college & career planning and social/emotional support. Our roles include individual counseling and advisement, consultation, parent assistance, referrals, program planning, assisting with post-secondary plans, advocating and general support to promote student success.

What makes us unique?


  • Currently, Niwot High School is the only high school in the St. Vrain Valley School District with access to Naviance

  • Naviance is a comprehensive, web-based program designed to promote college and career readiness.
  • Our NHS students use Naviance to search and compare colleges, track deadlines, develop resumés, complete surveys to determine learning style, identify interest areas that match to post-secondary programs, search for scholarships, use scattergrams to find college matches, view and register for college visits, receive communication from the Counseling Office and much more!

The College and Career Center

  • Niwot is one of very few high schools in the St. Vrain Valley School District to house a College & Career Center within the walls of our Counseling Office

  • The CCC provides a place for students to access college and career information either by computer or by the many printed resources available

  • Each year, over eighty-five representatives from colleges and universities visit Niwot High ranging from community colleges to schools like Princeton, Yale and Stanford

  • Niwot is targeted by college representatives of selective colleges and universities because of our reputation for excellence in academics, athletics and extracurricular activities as well as our students’ significant contributions to the community
