Counseling and Advisement

PHS Counseling and Advisement Webpage

The Pelion High School school counseling staff is here to assist you with the many decisions you will make during your high school career.  Whatever your plans beyond high school, our aim is to help you set realistic goals for yourself and develop an action plan for attaining those goals.  As part of this process, parents and students will be invited to participate in individual education/career conferences.  During this conference students will update Individual Graduation Plans (IGP), by choosing a School of Study, Cluster, and Major and define a high school course of study. The counseling staff conducts individual counseling, small group counseling, and classroom guidance sessions throughout the year to address career, educational, and personal and social concerns.  Parent information programs are presented during the year on various school topics, such as Open House, Preparing for College, Financial Aid for post-secondary education, and registration information.

Dana Crumpton, Career Development Facilitator
