School Counseling Department

Welcome! The St. Augustine High School School Counseling department will work in conjunction with teachers, families, students, and other staff members to maximize student achievement. We serve all students regarding academic planning, personal/social challenges, and assist them in planning future education and career choices.

2020-2021 Course Registration

Our 2020-2021 course registration process will run from Monday, Feb. 3rd through Thursday, Feb. 27th. Your student will have an opportunity to conference with his/her school counselor to discuss core academic and elective course options at a scheduled appointment through his/her English class. Students will have until Friday, March 13th to make any changes to their course requests for the 2020-2021 school year. After that point, course request changes will not be accepted. Please take a moment to review our updated registration policies.

Please take a moment to review the elective course options below so your student is prepared to meet with his/her counselor. You may also choose to pre-select elective choices through HAC following the instructions on page two of the elective option documents below. This will allow for additional time to discuss other topics such as credit recovery, grade forgiveness, and/or college/career planning.
