Your Journey To Success Starts Here!

Welcome!

 

Although our campus is still currently closed in an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, our Counseling Team is still here for all, during these challenging times. You are welcome here!

Our Counselors are available by e-mail for quick questions, by telephone or online via Zoom, an online meeting platform that works on computers, smart phone, or tablets to help you make informed decisions on your journey to success. A Zoom account is not necessary to participate.
