Saint Joseph High School Guidance Department
The Guidance Department consists of a team of counselors whose goal is to provide students with individual direction as they transition from middle school, navigate through high school, and prepare for college.
The Guidance Department provides individual services, group activities, and educational forums. Counselors assist students with the adjustment to high school, decision-making strategies, time management, and improving study habits. They provide a testing program that indicates students’ strengths and weaknesses, assess interest to guide students toward possible career opportunities, and provide practice/preparation for college standardized testing.
Counselors also assist in the course selection process to ensure a comprehensive evaluation of needs and wants as students work toward developing their potential and goals for the future. The Guidance Department’s college planning process includes defining interests and goals, a realistic assessment of college choices, serving as a liaison between the student and the college admissions office, and providing individualized student and parent assistance during the college research and admission process. The guidance counselors are available to students, parents, and other Partners in Mission in order to best assist in the total development of the young men at Saint Joseph High School.
Students are assigned a Guidance Counselor based on alphabetical order of last name.
