High School Guidance and Counseling Department
Enlightium Academy (EA) counselors guide high school students toward college and career choices via Naviance, help students meet credit requirements for graduation, and assist with college admissions. They keep junior and senior students informed about upcoming events that are related to career pursuits and college admissions via monthly emails. EA counselors are 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 take ownership in filling out college applications, scholarships, financial aid, and communicate to their counselor if assistance is needed. Learn more about how the 24 graduation requirements add up on this graphic.
The EA Counseling Department collaborates with teachers to ensure students are provided the attention they need to succeed in an online learning environment, whether it be needs regarding scheduling pace, academic, and/or emotional support.
Following the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) model, EA counselors guide students in self-discovery, success skills, and career and college planning activities through Naviance Student. Naviance will expedite the college application process for students in grades 11–12 and permit their counselor to assist with FAFSA, scholarship searches, official transcripts, school reports, recommendations and much more.
Career and College Planner Course
High school seniors that are enrolling in the 2nd semester of their senior year will have access to the teacher-led Career and College Planner course. This course encourages students to consider the real-world implications of the choices they make about their future. The Career and College Planner course also gives them practical tools for choosing a career, preparing for college entrance exams, navigating the application process, and sorting out the financial responsibilities associated with getting a college or vocational education.
EA counselors are available for students who may be experiencing stress or just need to talk regarding their academic path or future guidance. 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. This organization, while not affiliated with EA, is available for young students who need help. Another option is Soul Medics who are available through chat or text. Their website offers testimonies, words of encouragement concerning abuse, bullying, depression, and more.
