Counseling

The Westlake High School Guidance Department welcomes you! We want to provide you with the best support and atmosphere for all students, parents, teachers and administration. To accomplish this goal, we will try to focus on the needs of each individual and how to help everyone be successful in our school. The Counseling Office will be happy to honor all students requests to visit with his/her counselor during lunch, or after school. Students will not be allowed to miss class time.  We encourage you to take advantage of the many people, resources, and services that are available to you.
Discipline Policy, Updates & Info

1It is very important for you to keep your student’s Skyward account up to date.  If you have not already, you can go into Skyward until September 30th to take care of that.  There is also a place in Skyward that you can mark that you have read and you understand the DISCIPLINE POLICY at Westlake High School.  It is also important for you to enter your email address.  This is the way we can communicate most effectively.  For a step by step tutorial on how to update your students account CLICK HERE!

Withdrawing Students

3If you have moved or will be moving, you will need to go through the complete withdrawl process that begins with the registrar, Ms. Johnson.  She must know if a student will not be attending Westlake this coming year and where they will be moving to. Please let us know as soon as possible.

Crisis Intervention

5If you or your student are in need of Crisis Intervention such as, suicidal thoughts, depression, and/or anxiety, our Counseling Office can provide you with the necessary resources to recognize the symptoms and take the appropriate action steps to get help.  CLICK HERE to view resources and action steps.

New Students

2If you are a new student to the area and need to register at Westlake, you can do that by appointment only. Please see the “New Student” registration tab for all the forms and details.

Class Changes

4 At this point, there will NOT be class changes allowed.  If you have a hole in your schedule or if there are graduation credits at risk, or if you have made or dropped from a team, or completed a class during the summer and no longer need the class (proof of completion is required), then you may come to the Counseling Office to request a class change.  There will be a $5.00 fee for class changes that are granted.  Counselors will take these requests August 4th – August 14th 8am-2pm.  After August 14th, class changes will be over and you will have to adhere to the schedule you have.  Class changes will only be granted if there is availability.

College/University Applications

Choosing which College/University you want to attend is a big decision. Below are the application links to several College/Universities. We, as a Counseling department wish you the best as you decide and apply for your higher education path. Which one will you choose?
 
College/Universtiy Visits

College and University visits are a great way for you to see if it will be a fit for you. We highly recommend that you take time and visit a few different places so you can determine if the institution has just what you are looking for…in classes as well as maintaining student life. There are so many options out there–don’t settle for less than you want to see yourself achieve.

Scholarships

Applying for scholarships can be a taunting task however, we highly encourage all students to apply for scholarships sometime through their high school career.  This page is designed to help parents and students determine what can be applied for and help with pursuing a higher education path.  We have also included information regarding financial aid and student loans.
 
Financial Aid

1Financial Aid is any grant or scholarship, loan, or paid employment offered to help a student meet his/her college expenses.  This aid is usually provided by various sources such as federal and state agencies, colleges, high schools, foundations, and corporations.  The amount of financial aid that a student receives is determined through federal, state and institutional guidelines.  Grants include aid the student receives that need not be repaid; loans must be repaid.  Interest rates and repayment terms very by program.  Employment is aid based on an hourly rate for work performed.

Scholarship List
**New Scholarships are Added Frequently!**
