Guidance & Counseling

Dear Students and Families,

Welcome to the SHS Counseling Department site. Our goal is to offer essential support and transitional information to you, as you navigate four years of high school. Our school counselors strive to develop trusting and supportive relationships with each of our students and families in Somers. Our offices include the Counseling Center and the College and Career Center, and we work hand in hand to develop individualized experiences and supports for every student. Our team's focal points are on supporting each student's mental health, academic success, and transition to and beyond our high school.

Here, you will find key information about many programs and services we deliver directly to students in school, as well as evening events for both students and families. You will also find links to the Counseling Calendar, Counseling Newsletters, important links to external resources, year-by-year guides, and copies of presentations offered throughout the school year. We encourage the use of these resources, and we welcome suggestions to meet any needs that may not be represented.
