Counseling

The Counseling and Guidance Department consists of grade level counselors, a college and career counselor, peer education faculty, AVID teachers, and a Student Services Coordinator.

All students at Waialua High and Intermediate School are assigned to a grade level counselor. The grade level counselor monitors students’ academic progress and school adjustment. They keep track of grades, credits, attendance, and graduation requirements. The counseling department also maintains a College and Career Resource Center (CCRC) with a college/career counselor. The college/career counselor assists students with career exploration, college application and selection, scholarships, and financial aid.

All grade level counselors are available for students during the COVID-19 campus closures. Feel free to connect with your counselor via email or phone.
