At West Campus, each student is paired with a counselor who will follow the student from admission through senior year. Our college counseling program includes milestones for each student that promote planning and preparation for college admissions.

We encourage parental involvement in the college planning process, and, to that end, we have partnered with California College Guidance Initiative (CCGI) to further provide access and support to both students and families.
