In alignment with the American School Counselor Association, Deerfield "school counselors deliver school counseling programs that enhance student growth in three domain areas: academic, career, and social/emotional development. As a part of that program, school counselors implement strategies and activities to help all students enhance their academic development – the mindsets and behaviors students need to maximize their ability to learn – while recognizing that growth in all three domains is necessary for students to be successful now and later in life."
School counselors assist freshmen with Graduation Tracking curriculum through Advisory. The Tracker will be available through the student's Google Drive.
Course selection and registration begin in January with a pre-registration meeting to discuss course options for the following year. Actual course registration takes place in late January and February.
