Guidance


Welcome back!  I hope everyone had a great summer and had a chance to relax.  I wanted to share with you how students can meet with their guidance counselor this year.  Like everything else, we are doing things a little bit differently this year.

In the past, students were allowed to drop-in whenever they needed help.  In order to keep everyone safe and healthy, we are requiring all students to make appointments this year; no walk-ins allowed.  Students can choose to either meet in-person or via Google Meet/Zoom during their study hall period or WIN block. To make an appointment, we are using SignUpGenius.

 

To eliminate students crowding in the Guidance waiting room, we will email the student when it is safe for them to enter the office for their appointment.  If students have a time sensitive issue and they cannot find an immediate appointment time, they are being instructed to email their counselor ASAP. If they are having a crisis in school, they must find John Graceffa, Steve Barett, Nate Naughton or Erin Kreider rather than coming to the Guidance Office.The administrators will track us down if necessary.

High School is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity....Enjoy your four years and learn all you can!

The Guidance Department at Arlington Catholic High School is committed to helping students reach their full scholastic and personal potential. To this end, counselors provide academic support, college/career counseling, and social/emotional guidance. The services offered by Guidance are many and diverse, but our foremost concern is availability to students. Throughout the school year, students will meet with their counselor both individually, and in groups. Additionally, guidance counselors are the link between parents, teachers, and students. Parents are encouraged to communicate their questions and concerns regarding their child’s well-being and success. Likewise, students are welcome to schedule additional appointments as needed.
