Sac High: Academics: Counseling



At Sac High we’ve completely re-envisioned and re-engineered an approach to counseling. In addition to our advisors who serve students in small group dynamics, we also have an academic counselor and a college counselor dedicated to scholar success. The core responsibilities of our counseling team are to:

Create the master schedule

Work with students, families and advisors to develop appropriate course schedules for each student

Collaborate with classroom teachers to assign academic interventions when necessary

Develop Individual Learning Plans for each student

Work with the registrar to ensure accurate student transcripts

Provide general information to students and advisors about course selection, A-G, graduation requirements, and student support services

Coordinate internship opportunities for students with outside agencies

Assist students with applying for colleges, FAFSA and scholarships

Link students to enrichment programs, summer college programs and scholarships

Assist students with writing college essays and personal statements
