The Elkhart High School West Guidance Department is here to help you succeed in high school and prepare for college. Guidance counselors help students plan their programs of study and schedules, provide career counseling, assist in planning for post-secondary school opportunities, serve as a liaison between student, school and home, and provide personal counseling and crisis intervention. We work with students with a wide range of academic achievement and goals, and can help you navigate the earliest stages of your college and career choices.
