The counseling services at Elwood-John H. Glenn High School are comprehensive in nature and designed to meet the individual needs of each student.

The school counselor, teacher, administrator and the family all play an important role in the educational and emotional success of every child. Counselors meet with students throughout the year to discuss various issues including: adjustment to high school, time management, study skills, career exploration, graduation requirements, college preparation and other post-secondary options.

Naviance is an internet based program that counselors, students, and colleges use to manage the college application process. Naviance allows students to search and compare colleges, track acceptances and enrollment statistics based on John Glenn history, view important college related information, stay informed of the college visits happening at John Glenn during the fall, and keep track of scholarship opportunities. Naviance is a comprehensive program and while we find that juniors and seniors are amongst our heaviest users, many of our younger students and their parents will find this tool to be helpful in longer-term college and career planning.

Students and parents can receive their log-in information from their counselor.
