Welcome to the EWHS Counseling Department
OUR EXCELLENCE BEGINS WITH YOU
Make the EWHS Counseling Office your first stop for smooth sailing through Edmonds-Woodway High School! The counseling team is here to assist students to thrive academically, personally and socially, and navigate their post secondary options after high school. From course selection to college & career counseling, we can help you choose classes that are relevant to your future and assist you in the college application process.
We can also help you try to maintain emotional well being as you navigate through high school, offering a listening ear, a quiet place to think things through, or referrals as needed.
Our school counselors are assigned by alpha (last name). Get to know your counselor! They will be a great listener, thoughtful advisor and an advocate for you over the course of your high school years.
We work with students on academics, personal/social issues, and college/career preparation. School counselors have a master's degree or higher in school counseling, meet the state certification/ licensure standards and uphold ethical and professional standards of the American School Counseling Association (ASCA).
College and Career:
Students and or family members can set up appointments with the counselors in a few ways. Students can access their counselor during their advisory period and or during drop-in lunch periods. They can also schedule appointments in-person with Ms. Cheyenne Earls, Counseling Secretary, in the office. Students and or families can also email their counselor about scheduling appointments.
High school counselors are educators uniquely trained in child and adolescent development, learning strategies, self-management and social skills who understand and promote success for today’s diverse students. They implement a school counseling program to support students through this important developmental period. The program provides education, prevention and intervention activities, which are integrated into all aspects of students’ lives. The program teaches knowledge, attitudes, and skills students need to acquire in academic, career, and social/emotional development, which serve as the foundation for future success.
