Welcome Message

Welcome to the Guidance and Counseling Department! 
 
The mission of the Nanuet School Counseling Program is to provide programs and services that assist students to grow academically, personally, socially, and vocationally. We also provide comprehensive and developmental approaches to give all our students assistance and support so they may reach their individual goals
and potential.
 
Guidance services in Nanuet Senior High School are the resources provided to facilitate academic success, to help students better understand personal strengths, limitations, and interests, and to assist in planning for and attaining realistic goals.
 
School counselors help students assume responsibility for making plans and decisions; they interpret information for both students and their parents to help them deal with needs and problems that may arise. Counselors also show how interests, aptitudes, and abilities work together. They provide information and guidance about careers and opportunities for post-high school education--colleges, technical schools, work and apprentice programs, as well as financial aid information. Your counselor's major task is to see that you graduate after having experienced a rich and rewarding high school career.
 
The school counselors will meet with every student at various times during high school. These meetings include scheduling discussions, college planning, test results, grades, personal matters, or any other issues that may arise during the student’s four years at Nanuet Senior High School. In addition to counselor-scheduled appointments, students are encouraged to stop in the guidance office at any time. Students’ concerns will be addressed as soon as possible, depending upon the availability of the counselors at that time.

The Nanuet Senior High School Guidance E-News presents information for students and parents/guardians on pertinent guidance and counseling topics.
