CHS Counseling

College and Career 1

The mission of the Coronado High School Counselors is to promote academic achievement and to facilitate educational and career transitions.

Services include: academic/personal/social emotional counseling and transition plans for after graduation,  college admission advising, student/parent conferences, Section 504 case carriers, IEP meetings, interpretation of transcripts. The most convenient way to speak with a counselor is to email them.  It is helpful if you mention whether the matter is urgent, and whether it is best to send for the student during a particular class time or whether before/after school or lunch time is more convenient. If it is exceptionally urgent, please tell the Registrar, Kathy Redding, or someone in the front office, and you will be seen immediately.
