  HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELING DEPARTMENT

Our mission is to foster and support the academic, career, social, and emotional development of all Harborfields students.

Through personal contact with highly trained, effective, and caring counselors, all students are offered the opportunity to discuss, explore, and evaluate their abilities, needs, difficulties and aspirations.

Counselors note special and academic growth, and interpret standardized test results for students and parents. They are responsible for social and psychological services referrals. Guidance-sponsored meetings keep parents informed on the subject offerings currently available, highlight specific programs, and present valuable information on college planning and financial aid opportunities.

The high school guidance office is a resource center where students and parents may review extensive reference materials: directories and bulletins from schools of many types, occupational files, and summaries of scholarships and loan sources.
