Guidance gets head start on senior needs

Most high school students have quite a bit on their plate during the school year, but with the added pressure of applying and preparing for college, it is arguable that seniors have the biggest workload. The guidance office is doing its best to reduce the stresses that accompany senior year.

“Counselors are calling in seniors to talk about graduation requirements,” secretary Mrs. Lisa Lipin said.

Graduation requirements don’t always make the top of students’ to-do lists, as they have four years to forget about them. It is the goal of the guidance office that no student find themself in a situation where they do not graduate.

“If [a student] hasn’t taken the ACT, they need to. We also help with applying for financial aid, as well as choosing a college. I like to use Missouri Connections for this, and some counselors recommend the College Board website,” guidance counselor Mrs. Michelle Breuer said.

Guidance wants every student to know that should they need help in their college search, they need only drop by and fill out a form to see their counselor.
