Our 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 Counselor" 

    During distance learning your school counselor will have a daily, virtual drop-in time.  Check your school counselor's Google Classroom for the details.  
    You may contact your child's school counselor via email. Please 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.  Each school counselor will also be hosting virtual parent/guardian Q&A sessions.  The Q&A session details will be communicated to parents/guardians via email.

    International Baccalaureate (IB) courses are part of Troy’s IB Programme.  If a student is enrolled in an IB course at Troy they may be eligible to take the IB exam for that class.  Passing IB exam scores may earn students college credit while in high school.   IB Exams will cost approximately $125.00 each, late registration will cost more.   IB Exam registration will take place October 1-10.

    Instructions for the 2020-2021 Advanced Placement (AP) Exam 
    Registration Process
    Students enrolled in AP courses at Troy this year who wish to register for the AP exam for that class must follow these steps, established by the College Board, to register for their May 2021 exams.  All steps must be completed, in order for your AP Exam registration to be complete.  Please note that if any of these procedures are missed it will result in incomplete registration and the inability to take the May 2021 exam(s).

    Early September 2020 (Completed by students with their AP teacher during class)
    Step 1: Sign in to your My AP (myap.collegeboard.org) account, or create one if necessary, and enroll in your AP Class section(s).  Your AP teacher(s) will share the unique AP class Join Code with you.  This step will be completed during your AP class period. Parents/Guardians, students must have a My AP account (set up through the College Board) and know the login information. 
    Step 2: Once in the AP Classroom, under the “Order Exam?” column,  you must select “Yes” to indicate that you will be taking the AP exam; this begins your exam order to the College Board.  Additionally you will also be entering personal information used for AP exam registration.  It is important that you provide this information thoroughly and accurately. The registration information you provide is used to produce a unique AP exam label that you will use on your exam materials. NOTE: It is also crucial that you use the same name (legal) on all AP registration forms and during payment through the Total Registration website. 
    September 28-November 5, 2020 (Completed online by the student and parent/guardian)
    Step 3: Students and parents/guardians must then complete exam registration and pay for AP exam(s) using Troy’s Total Registration account.  The link to our Total Registration account is: www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/051009
    Registration and payment for exams will end November 5; registration after that date will incur a late fee.  Failure to register and pay for the AP exam(s) by that date will result in the inability to take the exam.  Students and parents/guardians must also review the included information on What to Bring/What not to Bring to AP exams and additional exam information.
    May 1, 2021 (Last day to cancel to receive FULL REFUND; after this date there will be no refunds, unless we are still in pandemic-mode.)
    May 1, 2021 is the last date when a student may cancel an AP exam and receive a FULL REFUND (less $4.00 per exam processing fee). Exam cancellations are to be requested through the student’s Total Registration account.  AFTER this date there will be no refunds, unless we are still in a pandemic situation. For all exam cancellations, students will be charged a $4.00 fee per exam to cover the Total Registration processing fee for which we are held responsible.
    May 3-14 2021 
    AP Exams take place during these two weeks.  Starting in late April students will receive emails via their Total Registration account with their exam schedule and details.  It is pertinent that students read these messages so they arrive at their exam(s) locations prepared and on time.  Failure to arrive prepared with required materials or to arrive at the test location on time may result in the inability to take the exam.

    Spring Semester Deadlines to Drop An Extra Course
    and/or Drop a Course Level
    If a student has an additional course and they wish to drop the class without penalty, they have until 3 PM on Friday, January 22, 2021 to do so.  Per district policy, students in grades 9-11 must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 classes and students in grade 12 must be enrolled in a minimum of 5 classes.  To request to drop an extra course, the student may email their school counselor directly.
    If a student is in an Honors, Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) and/or Cambridge course and wishes to request to move down in levels, they have until 3 PM on Friday, March 12, 2021 (end of the 3rd grading quarter) to do so.  To request a level change, the parent/guardian and student must send a joint email to their child’s school counselor to request this change.  As long as there is room in the lower-level course and it will work with the student’s schedule, the request can be accommodated.

    Department of Education - College ScoreCard
    To 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/.
