    Hello, all!!  Welcome to  the Guidance Corner!  

     

         While there are counseling sevices like one-on-one and small group sessions for students with specific

    and/or personal concerns and issues,  we offer classroom presentations on a wide range od topics.  College,

    Vo-Tech, work, career, smoking, national services are a few of the options  students could expect to experience

    this year.  One of the best computer-generated, student-based inventory programs entitled "Naviance" alllows

    students to identify personal likes/dislikes, skills, and abilities to better prepare them for post high school life.

         Some students prefer to work in a vocational setting.  We utilitize vocational services through Assunpink,

    Career Prep, and Sypek to ensure quality, training. and the best opportunity for employment.  Students are

    connected to a wide range of employment through the classes connected to businesses in the feilds in which

    they are studying.  

         Students looking to go to college have an opportunity to visit Mercer County Community College and speak

    with personal advisors.  After they tour the college, students are invited to a '' Q and A session'', where they learn

    about testing, accommodations if desired, scheduling, and finding a major.

         I assist students in creating resumes, looking for employment, filling out applications, and interviews.

     

    Middle school students will be starting Quarterly guidance sessions pertaining to the six pillars of Character Education. 

    If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call at 631-4181 ext 2557. 

    Until then, may there be peace in your heart and serenity in your mind,

    Tony Smith
