Our Guidance Team
The Guidance Department at Carroll High School focuses on a holistic approach that entails providing each student with the necessary tools and values to promote academic, spiritual and personal success. Each student is assigned a school counselor, beginning their freshman year, and a college counselor beginning their junior year. The school counselors follow the students throughout the four years of high school progression. This includes assisting students with their adjustment into high school commencing in 9th grade, academic advising throughout, and all college preparatory needs during their senior year of high school. In addition, counselors assist students with personal, social, emotional, or behavioral needs to ensure the wellbeing of the student.
Within the Guidance Department, the Accommodations Support Specialist provides the necessary support to students eligible to receive accommodations within the classroom setting and during standardized testing situations. Appropriate documentation for eligibility is necessary and yearly meetings are conducted with the parents and students to write new plans. The Accommodations Support Specialist also provides assistance and support for teachers in their classrooms as it relates to students and accommodations. The specialist works closely with students, parents, and outside agencies throughout the 4 years of high school and during transition to post-secondary education.

- Monday- Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 7:55 a.m.
