High School Counselor
The goal of WEM's School Counseling Program is to meet the needs of all students, personally and academically, in an empathetic, proactive, accessible, and professional manner. We believe that a comprehensive counseling and guidance program is an essential part of education for all students, at all levels. These programs facilitate student development in educational, career, and social/personal domains. Our program helps promote responsible, productive citizenship and lifelong learning. High School Counselors work with students to acquire guidance competencies that form the foundation for the next educational and occupational levels as well as address personal, social, and mental health concerns. They assist students to develop realistic educational, life, and career plans based on a clear understanding of themselves, their needs, interests, and skills.
Contact the high school counselor from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday with questions about registration, testing (ACT, Accuplacer, etc.), updates, student accommodations, or other counseling needs.Contact

WEM has a local scholarship packet that is distributed via Google Docs to students at the beginning of February. This packet includes directions specific to each scholarship listed.
These scholarships are to be reviewed by the student and parent to determine eligibility. WEM is not affiliated with any of these scholarships. If you have specific questions it is the student's responsibility to seek help from the scholarship provider. Scholarships are shared with students through their school email account (Google Drive). Updates and additions to scholarships can be found under the student's Google Drive account.
