Guidance Department


The Guidance Department Mission Statement

The Guidance and Counseling Program San Clemente High School School seeks to postively impact the lives of our students by partnering with parents, community, faculty and staff. Our program offers comprehensive planning and guidance services addressing student academic and career goals, as well as personal and social needs.  We work to give students the opportunities to acquire the educational and social competencies necessary for their growth toward lifelong success and effective, responsible citizenship for a diverse and changing world. Individuals receive assistance related to graduation requirements, academic progress, high school four-year education plans, testing, possible career options, college or career decisions, and scholarships.

Academic Assistance

Students are assigned to an Academic Advisor alphabetically, according to their last names and all AVID students are assigned to one Academic Advisor.  Although making an appointment is highly advised, students are always welcome to stop in to see their Academic Advisor during before school, during lunch, and after school if they have questions, need assistance, or would like to schedule an appointment.

Parents may call their child's Academic Advisor between the hours of 7:30 AM and 3:30 PM at 949-492-4165. It would be helpful to leave a specific time when the advisor can return your call and a direct contact phone number. Parents and students may may also communicate with their Academic Advisors through e-mail and SchoolLoop.
