College Guidance Counseling

The purpose of the HCA College Guidance Counseling Team is to assist students in effectively preparing for college through the following means: advice for ability-appropriate high school class choices, direction in the college application process, reminders of college deadlines, assistance with scholarship and financial aid opportunities, and organization of the many forms that are necessary for college applications. Our high school students have access to the college-planning website, Naviance, which offers vital, organized information to help our students narrow their college searches and keep on track with their deadlines.

Our desire is that students would develop their potential to the fullest – choosing high school classes that will challenge them – and would pursue a college that fits them and their personal interests and strengths.
