GHS Counseling Center

The counseling office at Gretna High School provides support to students for academic, college, and career planning, as well as addressing social and emotional concerns. Our office is dedicated to assisting students throughout their time at GHS and equipping them with the necessary tools for success beyond graduation.

Each student is assigned a counselor based on the first letter of their last name. Students have the opportunity to schedule appointments with their designated counselor to discuss various matters, including course planning and selection, standardized testing, skill development, college searches and visits, transcripts and letters of recommendation, peer relationships, and home and health concerns, among other topics. Our counselors are deeply committed to supporting our students and their success.
