Totino-GraceA Catholic High School in the Lasallian Tradition
The School Counseling Department lives out the mission of Totino-Grace High School by offering a comprehensive school counseling program to support our students and their needs. Whether a student needs support academically, emotionally, socially or in planning their future, we join them on the journey. We combine our efforts with teachers, parents, and administrators to best serve each student's individual needs.
Students are divided alphabetically into three sections. Each counselor is responsible for working with the students in their alphabetical section. Click HERE or on the Counselors button to the left for contact information.
Our college and career planning program seeks to help students identify career interests, and then apply to colleges that are good matches with regard to their aspirations, achievements, learning style and needs. Our Director of College & Career Planning oversees our overall college planning and standardized test programs, but all counselors work with students in the post high school planning process. We invite you to explore the College & Career Planning webpages on our site for information and resourses regarding post high planning and standardized testing information.
Our counseling program begins in ninth grade with an introduction to preparing for life during and beyond high school. Each student will meet with his/her counselor to discuss goals, a four year plan and the transition to high school. Throughout the year, the counseling department leads groups of students through the Passages curriculum. This curriculum, delivered during study hall, addresses topics unique to freshman year. Topics covered include study skills, high school success, goal setting, stress management, communication skills, and an introduction to career and college planning through completion of an interest inventory.
Information is crucial to this process--not only with students but with parents, as well. Our web site is a great place to find additional internet resources, department information and upcoming events. Please do not hesitate to contact your son/daughter’s counselor with any questions or concerns. We look forward to traveling with each student as they navigate through high school into their future.
Senior year is focused on student applications and finalizing plans. Students may work with their counselor in selecting schools to which they will apply, getting letters of recommendation, completing applications for schools and scholarships, and sending official transcripts. Our counselors are available to assist students and parents in any stage of this process. Throughout the year we ask students to let our office know of schools to which they've been accepted and scholarships they've been offered.
