Students also receive information from school counselors through classroom visits, small group counseling sessions, individual conferences, P.A. announcements, and bulletins.

Important information alerting parents and students to special evening presentations, tests, and other programs will be sent home.


Admission officers from college, trade, technical, and business schools, and the military will visit the guidance office. Students may schedule appointments to meet with the counselor.

Any student with an educational, vocational, or a personal problem is encouraged to schedule an appointment to discuss the matter with his/her counselor. Ferndale Area encourages students and parents to take advantage of the guidance services provided.
