College & Career


Counselors help each student’s educational, career, and personal development by providing guidance and support to prepare students for post-secondary success in college, career, and other pursuits. Our counselors work with all grade levels and are assigned to students based on the alphabetical order of students’ last names.

Students are encouraged to request an appointment to meet their counselor. Drop-in sessions are available during brunch and lunch.  Parents/guardians are welcome to request an appointment with their student’s counselor. You may contact the counselor through ParentSquare, email, or phone at 408-535-6340.

Counselors are not available during holidays, weekends, or school breaks.
