Guidance and Counseling
Enlightium Academy (EA) counselors guide seniors toward graduation and college entrance. They keep junior and senior students informed about upcoming events that are related to career pursuits and college entrance via newsletters and emails. EA counselors are committed to keeping high school students informed about PSAT, SAT, ACT, and FAFSA due dates via quarterly webinars (see the school calendar for details). It is important for EA high school students and parents to be involved with college applications, scholarships, and financial aid.
The EA Counseling Department, in collaboration with teachers, plays a key role in keeping students focused and on track for graduation. Counselors and teachers may write college recommendation letters, assist in the preparation of college application essays, and keep students notified about scholarship opportunities. The EA high school students should watch for guidance trainings and take advantage of presented opportunities.
High school students (typically juniors) also have access to the teacher-led College Planner course, which encourages students to consider the real-world implications of the choices they make about their future and gives them practical tools for choosing a college, preparing for entrance exams, navigating the application process, and sorting out the financial responsibilities associated with getting a college degree. From choosing a career path, to getting scholarships and financial aid, the College Planner course covers all the bases.
EA counselors are available for students who may be experiencing stress or need to talk. When counselors are not available (such as nights and weekends) or if students want to be anonymous in their conversation, students can visit RemedyLive.com.
Remedy Live, while not affiliated with EA, is an organization whose main goal is to be available for young students who need help. Soul Medics are available through chat or text. Their website offers testimonies, words of encouragement concerning abuse, bullying, depression, and more.
