ECHS Counselors Corner

 ECHS COUNSELORS

Students and their parents are encouraged to talk with a school counselor to learn more about course offerings and graduation requirements.  To plan for the future, each student should work closely with their counselor in order to enroll in the high school courses that best prepare him/her for attendance at a college, university, or trade school, or for pursuit of some other type of advanced education.  The counselor can also provide information about entrance exams and application deadlines, as well as information about automatic admission to state colleges and universities, financial aid and scholarships. 

ECHS school counselors are also available to assist students with a wide range of personal concerns, including such areas as social, family, or emotional issues.  ECHS counselors may also make available information about community resources to address concerns.
