General Guidance Info & News

Welcome to the Guidance Department

At San Clemente High School, we seek to positively impact the lives of all students by partnering with families, community and faculty. Our academic advisors and counselors offer comprehensive planning and guidance services to best address all student's 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 towards 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, post-secondary plans, college and career decisions, and scholarships.
