Welcome to the East Gadsden High Guidance Department


Welcome to East Gadsden High School Guidance Department website! Our guidance team offers a comprehensive guidance program to all students at EGHS. The Guidance Department assists students in dealing with academic decisions, career plans, personal problems, social skills, and other areas in preparing the student to take her/his place in our society. The Guidance Department is located across from the main office area.

During the school year, the counselors have group meetings and individual conferences to address the issues of each year of high school and to help students make good decisions. Counselors meet with juniors and seniors regularly to begin the college orientation process. They provide support to all students throughout the year, and have a wealth of information that will help students plan their future. Students should feel free to make appointments with their counselor when they need advice on any problem. 


Counselors provide the following services:

  • New Student Registration/Scheduling
  • Academic Advising
  • Student Scheduling
  • Parent Teacher Conferences
  • Scholarship Resources
  • College information and planning
  • Career Research
  • Referral for students in crisis
