About Us

Welcome to the Liberty High School Counseling & Social Work Department where we are committed to fostering the academics, personal, and post-secondary

growth of every student!

Senior Signing Ceremony

The Senior Signing Program is in its fourteenth year at Liberty High School and is intended to recognize those students who receive academic scholarships and/or other merit awards to further their education. This is a way for LHS to honor students and their families for their achievements in academic or other disciplines. This could include, but is not limited to, such areas as: performance and visual arts, debate and forensics, ROTC and military academies, leadership, service, or other extracurricular areas as well as academic scholarships from colleges/universities or scholarships awarded by businesses and service organizations. Athletic honors are not recognized at this ceremony, as a separate ceremony is held for these awards. Seniors may choose to participate in the ceremony held on April 26, 2022 in the LMC at 3:30 PM. The individual being honored will select a teacher, sponsor, or other representative to speak on his/her behalf and provide information about the student and his or her award. Seniors can pick up an Intent Form with more information in the Counseling Office. They also received an email on 3/9/22 with information and the Intent Form attached. The deadline to submit the intent form to the counseling office is April 8, 2022.

Fun Holiday - Common Courtesy Day!

Big picture

The day is a reminder that our treatment of others speaks volumes about our character.

Did You Know... that the term curtsey, meaning to bow down in front of someone as an act of respect, originated in the late 1600s in England?
