  • To help students find purpose in their learning now and get excited about future career possibilities
  • To help students feel prepared and excited about transitioning to middle school.
  • Parents feel more involved in their student’s learning foundation and career exploration.
  • Parents and students can plan on having time together with the school counselor at grades 5, 8, & 10. Transition years and grade 10 are critical years to stay in communication. A regular connection is developed between the student, parent and school, ensuring a better chance for academic success.

Here's what we'll explore together:

  • Student Interests, Strengths, Growth & Dreams
