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.

Department of Education - College ScoreCardTo further empower students and families, today we released our first annual update of the redesigned College Scorecard, a college search tool that President Obama launched in September 2015 and that nearly 1.5 million usersacross the nation have accessed since. With over 4,000 institutions available for students and families to search, the College Scorecard provides answers to critical questions about each institution, like how likely studentsare to complete their degrees, how much debt students take out, and how much the students typically earn after attending. And the interactive website provides users with the ability to search by program, degree type, location, or by namFe of institution. All of this information is available at https://collegescorecard.ed.gov/.
