School Counselors are ready to meet with their senior students to complete a graduation status check, talk about applying to colleges, and what comes next after high school.
You can schedule a meeting with your individual counselor by clicking on their appointment link on the guidance webpage. You can also make an appointment by calling the front desk of the guidance office, 321-952-5880 option 2. Be sure to say it is for your “senior meeting.”
Parents are strongly encouraged to attend with their senior students.
Please do not email your counselor to schedule a meeting. This often causes the counselors to end up double booked. You can access the appointment links in the link library to the right.
