Counseling

The Counseling and Guidance Department consists of grade level counselors, a college and career coordinator, 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 College & Career Resource Coordinator works collaboratively with the Grade Level Counselors and Parents to assist students with career exploration and planning. The Resource Center offers students opportunities to attend presentations by various Community Colleges, Universities, Military and Trade/Technical programs.
