WELCOME TO TROY COUNSELINGOur mission is to serve our students and promote academic achievement, career development, and personal and social growth. The guidance team is dedicated to each student and works collaboratively with parents, teachers, staff and administration to provide a positive school atmosphere. Our restructured guidance program allows students to develop a relationship with their assigned counselor starting their freshman year.
HOW TO SEE YOUR COUNSELORStudents are welcome to stop by the Counseling office without an appointment before school, break, lunch and after school with any questions they may have. (Do not come during class time as we do not want you to miss instructional time)
Parents & Guardians may contact their student's school counselor via email or phone. Please call or email if you have a school counseling-related question. If you have a question regarding a class grade, assignment, policy, or anything classroom related, contact the teacher directly.
