Counselors Corner

The Counseling Center is committed to meeting the needs of students, parents, faculty, staff, and the community in many ways: providing information, interpreting test results, assisting with academic placement and educational planning, addressing academic problems and concerns, working with crisis situations, and promoting personal and social development. Even though the Counseling Office maintains an open door policy, students’ needs are best met with scheduled appointments. The counselors offer unique programs such as Mentoring, Peer Mediation, and Georgia State University Educational Talent Search.

The Counseling Office is open from 8:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.

Counselors are also available before/after school and during lunch. Students are assigned to a counselor based on last name (LN):
