The Emery High Counseling office motto is:

“Decisions Determine Destiny"

School Counselors help students develop the academic and social skills needed to succeed in school—and later in life. ... Beyond supporting the social and emotional needs of students, they also help pupils explore their interests and potential career options

Counselors will hold annual CCRs for grades 9 - 12.  These CCRs are for students and parents and supply information specific to the student's current grade level.

College & Career Ready (CCR) What does it mean?
College & Career Ready means that students graduate from high school prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary opportunities--whether college or career-- without need for remediation.  To be college and career ready, students must graduate with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to succeed.
    • Graduates from High School
    • Receives at least an 18 on the ACT
  • Receives at least one of the following in advanced coursework:
    • A passing score on an AP Course
    • A "C" or higher in a CE Course
    • Meets at least one of the following
    • Career Pathway Completer (3.0 credits in an approved sequence of courses)
    • Career Pathway Concentrator (1.5 credits in an approved sequence of courses and the student earns an industry credential of value from an approved list of CTE Pathways)
Not all students are college bound, but ALL students need to be contributing members of society upon graduation from high school.
