The mission of The J. Graham Brown School Counseling Program is to foster respect, individuality, awareness, and accountability in our students by providing systematic and comprehensive school counseling services. Academic, social, and career skills will be nurtured through direct and indirect services ensuring that all students reach their highest potential based on their unique needs and abilities.
Parents can call the school counselor any time they have a concern for their child to schedule a conference.
Seniors! If you haven't completed your FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, there is still time. See the attached documents for instructions and best practices. Even if you don't think you will qualify for aide, you must STILL fill out the FAFSA!! Many scholarships are based on FAFSA information, whether or not federal aid is received.
