The mission of the Carmel High School Counseling Department is to support and enhance the academic, college/career, and social/emotional development of each student. All students are assigned a school counselor who will work with them on issues including the transition into high school, personal/social growth, problem solving skills, crisis management, curriculum development, and post-secondary planning. School counselors work in conjunction with the professional learning community collaborating to assist students towards a successful high school experience. The Counseling Department views parents as partners in education and welcomes parent involvement throughout their child’s high school experience.
Have your plans for next year changed? Thinking of attending college closer to home? Or have you been intending to apply to Dutchess and haven't gotten around to it yet?
If so, you are invited to join a representative from the Dutchess Community College Admissions Office ONLINE on Tuesday, June 2 at 1:00 p.m. to learn about the application process. After brief instructions, you will have an opportunity to apply to DCC online during this session and the representative will be available to answer questions in the chat room.
