‘Meet the Counselor’ Conferences

Conferences with School Counselors

High school counselors are available to schedule three-way conferences that include the parent(s), the student and the school counselor during the school day, preferably during a time that the student has free time including study hall or lunch. Some conferences may also be scheduled before or after school.

Individual counselors set up their own appointments. Conferences are be in-person, and may include FaceTime or Skype as requested.
