Calendarclipart.jpgThe mission of the Guidance Department is to provide an effective program that meets the college preparation needs of each student. Ours is a program that meshes with the mission of the school and assists each student in making the most of his four years here, ensuring that he can enter the next phase of his life with confidence, equipped to face whatever life sends his way.

The Guidance offices are situated among the academic classrooms on the third floor. One benefit of this arrangement is that the counselors are located where the students spend their day. Counselors advise Cadets on selecting classes and follow their progress through those classes. College and career information is explored and highlighted during each year of school.
