Welcome to the ORHS Counseling Department! Go To Top of Page

Counselors assist students and parents in making appropriate decisions relative to educational and vocational objectives, school programs, and relationships with teachers, administrators, and other pupils. There are six counselors at Oak Ridge High School, serving nearly 2500 students.

Counselors work with students to develop competencies in the areas of educational, personal, and vocational development. Through individual counseling and group presentations, counselors help students select appropriate courses, plan for post-secondary education or training required to reach their career goals.

All students are connected to a comprehensive system of support services, activities and opportunities at Oak Ridge or within the community that can help them to achieve their goals.  We also encourage you to check out the Career Center page.  Here you will find many links to resources that include grade level planning, college and career planning, scholarship information, and upcoming events.  

Counseling Office Hours: 7:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Monday - Friday (*Registrar available after 7:30 am)

To schedule an appointment, stop by the Counseling Office before/after school, break, or lunch.
