Guidance

The Charter Arts Guidance Department is staffed with a Director of Guidance with school counseling responsibilities, two full-time School Counselors and a Registrar.

Charter Arts students are assigned to a School Counselor alphabetically by last name; as such, students work with the same school counselor from 9th through 12th grade. The Guidance Department Curriculum includes:

  • Course Request/Scheduling
  • Managing Graduation Requirements
  • Career Inventory/Preparation
  • College Planning
  • Academic Advisement
  • Crisis Counseling
  • Transitional support into high school
  • Organization/Time management skill building
  • Social support/Peer Conflict Resolution

Students meet with their school counselors by appointment during their regularly scheduled study hall, during homeroom, and/or over their lunch hour. Students can request to meet with their counselor by completing a conference request form, and are generally scheduled for an appointment within one week. Parent/Guardian(s) are encouraged to contact their student’s school counselor by phone or email to discuss or make an appointment regarding any of the above services provided.
