Guidance Department
The Guidance Department is dedicated to helping our students with a variety of services. Of course since we are a college-prep high school, we do provide as much information about the college admissions process as possible. If you have any questions, please contact your child's counselor at their direct telephone extension or email them by clicking on their name.
