Chat with the Counselor

Although we don't have an office on a campus for you to meet with our School Counselor, Mrs. Ziccardi holds weekly Office Hours. We encourage high school students and their families to visit with her and ask any questions about high school course selections, college and/or career options, applications, letters of recommendation, scholarships, internships, work permits, as well as social, family and emotional concerns. You can also log on and just say "Hi!"  We love connecting with all of you!
