SSC Home

The Student Support Center (SSC) was formerly known as the Guidance Office. The Student Support Center is home to the School Counselors, Student Support Specialist and Student’s Academic Records. We are here to address and support the needs of our students and their families. We maintain open lines of communication between students, faculty, parents/families, and the community.  All Student Support Center staff are dedicated to helping students find success in school. If there is anything that we can do to help you take care of problems, accomplish goals, and be successful, please don’t hesitate to let us know!
