    Welcome to the 2020-2021 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. Please note that counselors are unable to accommodate meeting requests from incoming 8th grade families and will be directed back to their current school's counselor. 
    Why should I, a student, come talk to my counselor?

    Counselors are here to help! Whether you have questions about grades, college, trade school, sucess strategies, life after graduation, family or peer relationships, bullying, identity struggles, anxiety, depression, anger, etc. the counselors are here to listen. Sessions with your counselor are private and remain confidential unless there is serious and forseeable harm to yourself or others.
