Counseling is an integral part of the curriculum at Grosse Ile High School. Students are encouraged to make appointments with their school counselor at any time to get assistance in solving their personal, social, academic, school, home, or related problems. The counseling program assists each individual student with the adjustment to school, work, social life, and the community. Students or parents who want to see their assigned counselor may do so by making an appointment through the counseling office administrative assistant.
Information on post-secondary programs including college, apprenticeships, military, scholarships, and financial aid can be obtained from the counseling office.
Applications for most colleges and universities are available online on each individual school’s website under the “admissions” section. Some universities require students to apply through the Common Application (www.commonapp.org). Seniors should begin reviewing college application requirements, including admission essays and letters of recommendation, in August going into their senior year. Deadlines for applications and consideration of merit scholarships vary for each school; please be conscious of these important deadlines.
