High School Counselors

High school counselors and college advisors assist students by providing professional insights into the college application process. We’ve compiled information and resources to help you and your students navigate the college admission process.

As a guidance counselor, you play a vital role in providing information for your students during the college search process. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to share the New Mexico Highlands story.
