Student Services Office

The Student Services Office at Minooka Community High School is designed to help students learn about themselves, identify their interests, investigate the world of work and take direct action to build lifelong competencies while in high school. High school students are faced with the prospect of numerous and diverse choices in post-secondary planning. In any decision-making process, gathering information is the key step. To achieve these objectives, students and parents are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities and programs throughout their four years of high school. In the freshman year, counselors meet with students to help them understand their own learning styles and review available guidance services. Sophomore year focuses on career options and the PLAN, practice ACT test. In the junior year, counselors meet with students and an overview of post-secondary educational planning is presented. During the senior year, students examine options, submit college applications and make post-graduation decisions. Throughout the four years of high school, students are encouraged to meet individually with their counselors. Our college coordinator is available as a resource person.
