    Counseling Crossroads
     
    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! At Heritage High School, our Counseling Department provides comprehensive services to all HHS students. We are here to support all students throughout their high school career by providing academic, college, career, and social-emotional counseling. 
     
    Each student is assigned to a counselor that represents their Small Learning Community (SLC). Students are encouraged to visit their SLC office before school, during lunch, or after school to speak with their counselor or to make an appointment.
     
    Parents and guardians may contact their student’s counselor by phone or e-mail.
