LCHS Counselors


LCHS Student Services Twitter


All students are assigned a guidance counselor when they enter Lakes as freshmen. Counselors work with students throughout their four years at Lakes to help them on their path to their post-secondary plans, whether that be a four-year college, entering the work force, or another route. Counselors also offer social-emotional support to students through programming and/or one-on-one meetings.
