Counselor's Corner

The South High Counseling Center meets with students individually, in small groups and in the classroom to work on academic planning, career planning and personal/social issues. We also provide lessons through homeroom.

What is my student doing for Academic & Career Planning?

All students are actively participating in their own unique Academic and Career Planning process! During homeroom, students have the opportunity to engage in a variety of activities to learn more about themselves and plan for their futures. Here's some of the things your students have been doing in homeroom! Click the links below the descriptions to watch the videos that lead your student through their exploration process.


Freshmen & Sophomores:

Freshmen and sophomores have been encouraged to further investigate careers of their choice by contacting a Career Coach through INSPIRE Sheboygan County. Career Coaches are local employers who are ready and excited to answer students' questions about their careers.

Juniors & Seniors:

Juniors and seniors have been encouraged to further investigate careers of their choice by setting up a Job Shadow through INSPIRE Sheboygan County. Information on requesting a job shadow and tips on how to prepare for a job shadow can be found here.
