Counseling Mission Statement

We, as high school counselors, support the school mission statement and are committed to helping students learn.  Through individual counseling, classroom presentations, and group work, counselors help facilitate the development of appropriate social skills while emphasizing academic excellence.  We are anxious to meet with teachers and parents as needed in order to maximize the student’s potential for success.  We also provide information regarding high school course selection, post-secondary training options, financial aid, scholarships, and career choice.  We help students be successful leaders of the 21st century.

Indiana College Core

Do you want to get a head start on college? The Indiana College Core allows high school students to earn 30 general education credits that can be transferred as a block to any public college or university in Indiana, as well as some private institutions. In other words, students who earn the College Core in high school may already be finished with their first year of college at a fraction of the cost. To learn more about the Indiana College Core and put together your plan, use My College Core ( and work closely with your school counselor.

What is FAFSA?

The Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the most important document for determining if you’re eligible for financial aid — money to help you pay for education and training beyond high school. The easiest way to file the FAFSA is online at

After you file your FAFSA, your college will be able to tell you which scholarships and grants you could receive as well as how much money you can borrow in federal loans. To find out more about the FAFSA, including what kinds of state financial aid is available, check out Learn More Indiana’s FAFSA guide for Hoosiers.
