Guidance and Counseling

Guidance & Counseling

Guidance and counseling services are provided to all middle and high school students. Guidance counselors provide support services addressing the academic as well as the social and emotional needs of students faced with important personal and career choices. They guide students in making appropriate decisions, solving problems, and accepting responsibility for planning their programs of study by examining future goals, special skills and talents, and individual capabilities. Guidance counselors serve as resources for parents with information about scholarships, financial aid, interpreting test scores, graduation requirements, and college or technical school choices.

The collection includes career and college search reference books and materials, college CDs, and career and occupational briefs and projections. The center is available during regular school hours to students attending Hicksville High School.
