WSS College & Career Planning

The WSS Guidance Team consists of our School Counselor and our College Counselor, overseeing our 4-year college and career planning process. The team works closely with each WSS student and family upon enrollment to begin the process of planning students’ 4-year academic program of study, to consider postsecondary plans, explore college and career interests and options, and to support the application process in their senior year (and after) through our Naviance guidance platform. Parent information sessions are scheduled each year and individual college and career planning meetings are set up with each student multiple time during their years at WSS.
