College, Career and Counseling Center

Welcome to the Mayfield Jr./Sr. High School Career and Counseling Center!

The vision of the Counseling Center is for students to possess the academic knowledge, skills, and self-awareness to be lifelong learners as well as empathetic and successful citizens. Throughout the school year students meet with their school counselor to discuss class scheduling, test scores, college admission procedures, career planning, social concerns, and academic needs. Students may stop in to speak with their school counselor between classes, during non-instructional time, or after school.

Your school counselors are available to help you not only survive, but thrive during high school. In addition to the many resources available in our office, you may use the links below to help you through your journey at Mayfield Jr./Sr. High School.
