Guidance Services
panel expand or collapseAbout Us

The Guidance Department provides educational and vocational counseling to all students in the high school. Over the course of the four years in high school, students and counselors will meet individually and in groups to address academic, social and career options. The primary focus of the counseling program is to help students identify their strengths, needs, interests and abilities. Through this ongoing developmental process students will effectively learn to define their personal goals and achieve greater self-awareness.

As liaisons among faculty, students and parents, the guidance counselors help to provide a framework for career exploration that fosters self-direction, personal motivation and incentive to achieve well in all aspects of life. Career exploration and appropriate grade level testing span the course of the four years a student attends Northern Valley Regional High School.

The counselors act as liaisons and resources for students and parents so that each student has opportunities to identify personal options. Helping students to reach their potential is the ultimate goal of the guidance program. Student Assistance Counselors provide on-going support and individual counseling as needed to all students.
