Counseling, College & Careers, Student Support

With a Homestead education, each student has the necessary tools to create his or her own path to success. Because each student's path is unique to his or her interests and strengths, a student has access to a number of resources and supports to nurture academic, college, career, personal, and interpersonal development.

Counseling Department

Counselors are available to help students with almost everything, including academic advising, counseling for personal and social concerns, navigating the college planning and application process, and providing resources for additional help. A student's counselor is always a good first step when seeking help of any kind. Learn more about the counseling department at Homestead.

Academic & Career Planning

ACP is a student-driven, adult-supported process in which students create and cultivate their own unique and information-based visions for post-secondary success, obtained through self-exploration, career exploration, and the development of career management and planning skills.

The ACP program authentically engages students in collaboration with teachers, counselors and the ACP coordinator in developing their future identity to support their personal growth and achieve their career aspirations. Learn more about the process of academic and career planning at Homestead.

Academic Success Center

Staff members in the Academic Success Center, or ASC, assist students with tutoring, organization, and study skills. The ASC is available to students during study hall and before school. Learn more about the Academic Success Center.
