Counselors In The Classroom

In September counselors visited with seniors to review educational plans, graduation requirements, and applying to college. Students walked away with helpful information that is located on the HCHS Counselor Webpage.

Counselors also visited with sophomores to discuss post secondary planning and career readiness, along with interpersonal effectiveness. Students looked at factors that impact their college preparedness, while maintaining their academic integrity.
