Counseling – Students
The ST.E.P. Program
The Student Educational Plan
The school counseling program at Manchester High School features the ST.E.P. Program which provides each student with a long-range educational plan. The Student Education Plan is facilitated by the student’s counselor and begins with an annual review or assessment of student needs. As the student progresses through the process, he or she is made aware of factors which influence an individual’s career goals. Students are encouraged to establish objectives so that counselors may prescribe the appropriate school classes. Counselors will also recommend a variety of other experiences that will help students in the exploration of their career objectives. These include student activities, volunteer activities, career development activities, job shadowing experiences, work experiences, and internships.
Making An Appointment With Your Counselor
Students may initiate a conference with their assigned counselor by making an appointment. Grade 9 students can set up an appointment in Room 189. Grade 10-12 students can set up an appointment in Room 117. Counselors will also initiate conferences with students by sending them an appointment notification. Counselors will meet with all assigned students during the school year.
