During the sophomore year, the counseling department encourages students to explore careers and post-secondary pathways, familiarize themselves with college admissions expectations, and develop their skills in communication and personal presentation. In order to support student development in these areas, the Counseling Department offers the following programs:
Three times a year, the counselors present classroom lessons to students through their core academic classes/in-school field trips. These lessons cover a variety of topics including proper use of social media, career research, post-secondary preparation and strategies for managing anxiety and stress. These lessons are 90 minutes in length.
During second semester, every sophomore will meet with their counselor to talk about their academic progress, personal well-being, and preparation strategies for college and/or post-secondary opportunities.
This year, we hope to pilot a Career Fair as well as a Mock Application Workshop for students. The aim is to expose students to a variety of post-secondary pathways and help them develop clear goals for their time at JCP and beyond!
We see ourselves as partners in helping sophomore students succeed this year at Jones. We welcome your feedback, comments, and suggestions. Feel free to reach out to your child’s counselor!
