KHS Guidance - 9th Grade Information and Resources


Freshman Seminar

Counselors will meet with small groups of 9th grade students during advisory time.  These small group meetings will allow us the opportunity to check in with students to assure that each student is experiencing a positive transition to high school. Students will receive a booklet entitled “Making the Most of the Next Four Years.”  Counselors will share information about how to be successful in high school, review credit requirements for graduation, and discuss the importance of a strong academic preparation.
