In the student’s junior year, the school counselor is available to see him at any time in order to:
- help them continue their process of self-discovery
- set goals
- develop strategies for this challenging year of transition in their lives
Junior year is also the time when college counselors and students begin to discuss the college search and college planning process. Please refer to the College Counseling page for additional information.
Regarding honors, advanced, and AP courses, it is usually best for a student to take the most challenging courses offered to him that the student, parents, and teacher feels he will do well in. Sometimes, this may result in a student taking three or four advanced courses. These courses are a way of placing your son with students who are similar in motivation and ability. Call the counselor if you have questions.
