Planning for the future while completing high school requirements can be a challenge. Our guidance department is here to help, from guiding you through a graduation plan, to helping you register for college and providing resources and ideas for college funding.

While our guidance counselors meet with every student throughout the year, we encourage students to be proactive about their high school education and beyond.

Student Services Mission Statement

The mission of the school counselors at Mohawk Trail Regional School is to assist students in developing the skills, knowledge, and mindsets to be curious and challenged students, engaged community members, productive workers, and lifelong learners.

The counselors will assist in this process by providing a comprehensive, developmental, and proactive counseling program that addresses the academic, social, emotional, career, and college needs of every student.

The school counselors will provide timely academic, social/emotional, and career and college information to all students through the classroom, small groups, and individually. The goal of this information is for students to understand themselves, their options, and how to make decisions about their future.

Congratulations to the Graduates of the Class of 2019!
