The LWHS College Counseling Department's emphasis is on counseling, not placement, and we seek to provide an atmosphere of supportive encouragement for all. Our intention is to work with both students and parents/guardians toward making the best possible choices for each student.
We abide by the National Association for College Admission Counseling's Principles of Good Practice in guiding our students and families, and in communicating with colleges.
