Programs, Supports, & Services

Guidance Department

Guidance counselors are assigned by grade level and remain with each student throughout his or her time at Hoboken High School. A counselor's responsibility reaches far beyond merely scheduling students into a program of studies. Each counselor is assigned to guide and counsel students throughout the high school years. The counselors attempt to get to know students’ unique needs and help them reach their full potential. Counselors assist students in the selection of a realistic and satisfying academic program which they support by providing information about further education and career decisions.  


In addition to counseling related to academic issues, counselors assist with the personal, social and emotional growth of their assigned students. They also work closely with teachers, parents and other professional and community resources.  

Guidance Counseling Services focus on the following areas:
Individual conferences
Academic achievement
Admission to college, vocational, or business schools
Use of Naviance Family Connection
Career exploration
Course selection
Personal concerns or problems
Schedule adjustment
Scholarship and financial aid information
Test interpretation
Group meetings

All 9th & 10th grade students are introduced to career exploration and given current information on careers of their choice. All 11th and 12th grade students are helped with career and college search procedures. Also, all 9th, 10th and 11th grade students will be administered the PSAT and all 11th grade students will be enrolled in The Princeton Review class.

College Representatives’ Visits & Instant Decision Days

College representatives’ visitation dates are posted in Naviance. Interested junior and senior students may arrange to meet college representatives by registering in Naviance. Conferences with college representatives are held in the guidance office unless otherwise specified. 
Naviance Family Connection 

Since adopting Naviance at Hoboken High School, the program has proved to be a valuable resource for students, families, and counselors alike. Naviance Family Connection provides students and their families with an outstanding college research tool and serves as a hub of information and planning for the college admission process. The data stored in our Naviance system is comprised of information from recent Hoboken High School graduating classes and allows current students to use the most up to date information about where their peers have gone onto study.

School Based Youth Services Program (Student Center)

The professionals in the Student Center run various programs and provide many types of group and individual counseling designed to help our students to succeed and graduate. The mission of the SBYSP Student Center at Hoboken High School is to provide an array of social services to our students in a warm, supportive, and professional environment. Our objectives are to enable our youth to complete their education, career readiness, reach their fullest potential, be prepared for higher education, and lead physically and mentally healthy lives.
