The Academic & College Counseling Department is an integral part of the educational program at Lutheran High School South. Our counseling professionals nurture students in their spiritual, academic, emotional and social development. Counselors use a proactive, developmental approach to assist students in making wise decisions personally, academically and vocationally. They assist students in choosing a balanced program of studies, in understanding themselves, and in selecting the courses required for college admission or other vocational choices.
Our structured academic and college counseling is deliberately focused on planning for continuing education in a college or university best suited to the student's strengths and goals. The academic counselors also provide assistance in exploring college and career choices, submitting college applications, and pursuing scholarship options.
Discussion with a teacher or a counselor will help students solve many problems that may confront them during their years of high school life. Each student should feel free to consult the counselors or teachers at any time.
We give personalized attention to our students in these areas:
- Academic planning/ counseling
- Career planning/ assistance
- Personal counseling and referrals
