Welcome, sophomores! The Counseling Center serves as one of the many contributors to the formation of students as independent, self-reliant individuals, now and beyond their high school years. During this year, students continue to build on skills introduced freshman year, such as organization, time management and conflict resolution, as well as begin to explore methods that will provide a better understanding of self.
Individually and in small groups, we work to discover tools and tactics that will assist you in various areas. Some of the strategies utilized to aide students in becoming well-rounded life learners include:
  • Developing study habits  
  • Enhancing self-advocacy skills
  • Deepening social networks
  • Exploring career paths
  • Learning test-taking strategies
  • Managing stress
We continue to promote the Counseling Center as a place of encouragement, support for academic achievement and a haven for coping with issues relating to high school life.  Students are always welcome to drop by or make an appointment. As a commitment to our mission statement, the Counseling Center is a viable part of preparing our students for lives dedicated to leadership, achievement and service to the community.
