Counseling

 
The Escalon High School counselors strive to assist students in achieving success in all aspects of their lives. Counselors get to know their students in grade nine and remain involved with them throughout high school, providing individual, ongoing guidance on academic, personal, extracurricular, and post-secondary options.
 
Escalon High School Students/Parents,

 

The Counseling Department understands this is a difficult time for all involved having to adapt to a new way of receiving education and/or services to support each other. As a department, we wanted to reach out to let you know we are available to all students.  If for any reason you would like to discuss the adjustments to the current circumstances in which we face, please feel free to contact your counselor using their email.  Please make sure you leave your phone number so that your counselor can call you back.  You may also visit "Help for Students in Crisis".  We are all in this together, so please take care and stay healthy.

 

Sincerely,

Your Counseling Department

Before students can decide what career they want, they need to understand who they are.

That’s why CaliforniaColleges.edu offers students free career exploration tools that help them identify their values, interests, learning styles, and personalities, as well as learn how they can connect those to fulfilling careers. These tools include:

  • The Interest Profiler helps students discover how their interests connect to different careers. It does this by asking questions about how much they like or dislike different work activities. After completing the assessment, students will obtain a list of careers that match the activities they like.
  • The Work Values Survey asks students to rank values related to work, such as coworker relationships, creativity, and compensation. At the end, students are presented with careers based on the values that are most important to them.
  • The Multiple Intelligences assessment asks students questions about how they think, solve problems, and come up with new ideas. Using their answers, the assessment presents students with information on their strengths, how to develop them, and what careers their strengths might match.
  • The Do What You Are assessment is similar to a Myers Briggs personality type assessment. It asks students to respond to different descriptions, then uses their responses to highlight characteristics that align to their personality and corresponding careers.
