Tippecanoe High School Counseling OfficeSCHOOL CEEB#364-995
(USED FOR ACT, SAT AND COLLEGE APPLICATIONS)
The School Counseling Department takes an active role in providing academic, career and personal development support and assistance to all students at Tippecanoe High School.
Counselors work with students, parents and teachers to enable students to make the most of their opportunities and educational experience at Tippecanoe. Counselors facilitate individual, as well as group programs, to enable students to become aware of responsibilities, skills, resources and abilities needed to become lifelong learners, productive workers and successful citizens.
Students are encouraged to take advantage of the counseling services at Tippecanoe and consult their counselor with their social/personal concerns as well as career and college plans. When students need to see their counselor an appointment will be made as soon as possible during the student’s study hall or at a time that least interferes with the student’s academic classes. If there is an emergency situation the student will be seen without an appointment.
All teachers are encouraged to refer students to the counselors whenever there is a concern or need. In addition, counselors are available to assist teachers whenever needed. Counselors will upon request prepare an academic profile of the student, including applicable ability/achievement test scores, grade history, etc.
