Post Secondary Planning starts in ninth grade and is one of the most important steps families can take to ensure a bright future for their student. We are here to help in the counseling office, and we hope that the following information helps guide you along the way.
Counselors meet with each and every student for a one on one meeting at least once every school year. During this meeting we discuss future goals, career paths, and ensure that students are taking appropriate course work to meet these goals. We also double check that they are completing the appropriate course work for graduation.
Junior year, in addition to one on one meetings, counselors hold 4-5 meetings throughout the year to gear up students to apply to colleges the following summer. We go over college entrance exams (ACT/SAT), college visits, and the college application process.
In addition the Hartland Counseling Office provides a variety of evening parent/student programs to help families in this often confusing and every changing process. These night programs are our attempt to keep parents informed and up to date, and we believe they are very important to the college admission process.
The opportunities that are open to students beyond high school are determined in large part on how a student performs in ninth-twelfth grade. Planning for the future therefore needs to start early, let us know how we can support your student in reaching their goals.
Hartland High School encourages all high school graduates to earn an Associate Degree, Bachelor Degree, or other work related credential after high school graduation. We are a proud partner with the Livingston Career and College Access Network. More on the Livingston Career and College Access Network can be found by clicking here.
