Welcome to the School Counseling Office


    Schedule Your 9th OR 10th Grade IGP 


    It is time for all 9th and 10th graders to schedule their individual graduation plan meeting (IGP)! We will be holding 9th and 10th grade IGPs from January 29-February 29, 2024. These meetings typically take around 20 minutes. Your IGP will review future plans, course requests for next school year, college and career information, and more! 

    If you cannot attend your child's IGP in person, we encourage you to participate by phone.  We look forward to seeing everyone there! Please use the link below for your specific counselor to schedule your meeting.

    Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at YCHS! We hope our students have enjoyed their summer break and are ready to start another successful school year. Each year, the counselors choose a word of the year to be the focus of the counseling department. This year we chose the word "inspire". Take the opportunity this school year to motivate yourself with that initiative, but don’t keep it to yourself. If you can get into a mindset of relentless optimism, share it with others. Help them to see the opportunities, not the lack of possibilities. Show them the upside, not the downside. Encourage them with enthusiasm. Become an engine of inspiration, fuel for optimism, and oxygen for the opportunity!

    We look forward to working with students and parents as we grow together throughout this new school year!
