Counselors at Lake Zurich High School are here to assist the student with any academic, college, career or personal concern. A comprehensive developmental program is provided, which culminates in plans for college or other post-secondary school experiences.
Preparing for specific vocational or college interests requires careful planning of the students’ course of study. Beginning with the freshman year, a four-year plan is developed for each student with the assistance of his/her counselor. Programs and services that are offered by the counselors, social workers, school psychologist, and nurses include a variety of personal development programs, college representatives, Financial Aid Night, College Nights, SAT Prep-Classes, PSAT, ACT, and Advanced Placement testing. The College/Career Center (CCC) in the counseling office serves as a major resource to students. The CCC hosts visits from college representatives, offers printed college search and career materials, and provides access to the internet-based program Naviance. With this program, students can conduct interest inventories and college searches as well as access other college, career and financial aid information.
