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!

Work Permit Application

Congratulations on looking for a new job! Please download the Work Permit Application and follow these steps to get a permit.

  1. Fill out the "Minor's Section"

  2. Get your parent to sign the form

  3. Get your new employer to fill out and sign their section.  (I suggest bringing out this almost completed form to any job interview.  When your new employer offers you a job, you can bring it out and hand it to them to fill out and sign.  It makes you look very prepared.)

  4. Return the application to Mrs. Ziccardi ( to process.  She will turn it around within 24 hours and send you the official permit to give to your employer.
