    Dear Students and Families,


    We miss you all so much! The School Counseling Office will open again when schools are allowed to open. We are still here for you, though. So please contact us with any questions or concerns.


    All school counselors are working from home.


    Please follow our social media for the most up-to-date information regarding tutoring, scholarships, financial aid, college admissions, SAT, ACT and AP testing, and career planning. We will be updating our blog weekly, and hope to do the same with the school counseling and college and career pages on the Tucson High website.
