                                                                              NEW PROCEDURES FOR SCHEDULING CHANGES

As a counseling department, our top priority is to schedule every student for their core academic program.  In some instances, an elective course may have been dropped due to a scheduling conflict with a core course.  Schedule changes will only be considered and accommodated based on necessity. No Teacher changes are allowed. To request a schedule change, a parent must email the counselor directly.  Please understand.

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.

HS Guidance e-Newsletter

 The Nanuet Senior High School Guidance E-News presents information for students and parents/guardians on pertinent guidance and counseling topics. Monthly e-news will supply details about school and community informational programs, post-secondary academic and career opportunities, financial aid, scholarships, standardized testing and community resources.
