General Guidance Information

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. Students may schedule meetings with their Academic Advisor by signing the appointment notebooks available in the Guidance Department located in the administration office. Although making an appointment is highly advised, students are always welcome to stop in to see their Academic Advisor during non-class time 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 8:00 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 may also sign their child's Academic Advisor's appointment notebook located in the Guidance Department in the administration office to schedule a meeting.


Parents and students may may also communicate with their Academic Advisors through e-mail and SchoolLoop.

Tips for Senior Parents

Is your “senior” on track to graduate?

To ensure your senior student is on track to earn their high school diploma in June, you may view your child’s current graduation status via the Parent Portal by selecting “Graduation Status” under the “Grades” tab.

The Graduation Status is comprised of five columns.  The first and second columns list the subject requirements and maximum number of credits needed per subject to earn a diploma.  The third column, “Credit’s completed,” lists the credits your child completed by the end of their junior year.  The fourth column lists the credits that your child is currently enrolled in and needs to complete for the fall 2014 semester, and the fifth column represents the credits that will need to be completed during your child’s final semester, spring 2015.

By the end the fall semester of senior year, seniors should have completed 195 credits to be considered “on track” to earn a diploma at the end of the spring semester.  Students who have fewer than 195 credits are considered “at-risk.”   Students “at-risk” of earning their diploma will most likely be enrolled in one or more of the following:  6 or 7 classes, the Academic Intervention class or the CUSD Online Credit Recovery Program.   

Please note that the Graduation Status reflects graduation requirements only, not college admissions requirements. To ensure that your child is meeting college admission requirements please refer to the “Grades” tab and select “College Entrance Requirements.”

Please be advised that your child must pass all required courses indicated in the fourth and fifth columns under “Graduation Status” in order to earn their diploma and participate in the commencement ceremony on June 19, 2015.  We encourage you and your child to monitor grades via School Loop to ensure success.  If you have questions or concerns regarding your child’s graduation status or college admissions status, please contact your Academic Advisor.


Thank you,

The San Clemente High School Guidance Team
