Academic Counseling


Individual or small-group counseling: School counselors work with students analyzing and evaluating students’ abilities, interests, skills, and achievement. Test information and other data are often used as the basis for helping students develop immediate and long-range plans.

Available Supports:

  • Individual academic counseling
  • Review data to identify students in need of supports and interventions
  • Track and assist academically at-risk students
  • Check your grades at least twice a week on Aeries
  • Check your assignments daily on Canvas
  • Use your planner every day to keep track of homework, project deadlines, upcoming tests, events, sports practice, etc.
  • Set up a "study space"
    • Have all your material in front of you: lecture notes, course textbooks, study guides and any other relevant material
  • Don’t try to do all your studying the night before the test. Instead space out your studying, review class materials several times a week, focusing on one topic at a time
  • Take short breaks frequently. Your memory retains information that you study at the beginning and the end better than what you study in the middle
  • Review/re-write notes
  • Make flashcards on Quizlet
  • Create a Kahoot! (interactive game-based learning program)
  • Use Khan Academy (expert created content and resources for every subject)
  • Ask a friend/parent to quiz or review with you
  • If you choose to study in a group, only study with others who are serious about the test
  • Re-do homework problems as practice
  • Organize your backpack weekly
  • Pack your backpack (check for assignments you're turning in) the night before
