Counseling & Guidance News
The high school counseling staff is available to assist students with schedules, college applications, and a variety of needs.
The Counseling Department at Albion High School is comprised of school counselors, a school psychologist, a social worker, and secretarial support. The goal of the Albion High School Counseling Department is to assist every student in all aspects of their high school career… and beyond. Counselors meet with students annually to assist with the planning of curriculum that meets the individual student's needs and goals. During that meeting, students review their progress towards completing the requirements for graduation to insure that students are headed in the right direction.
The department has group counseling to meet the various needs of the students. The Counseling Center also houses college catalogs, financial aid information, college videos, and various career resources. Many colleges visit Albion High School frequently to offer information regarding their school. The department hosts two College Fairs every October and has over thirty (30) area colleges and universities attend.
