School Counseling

Walking with students

We facilitate the holistic development of all students by assisting students in planning educational careers through high school and beyond, offering support in the midst of emotional/family stresses, encouraging students to make responsible life decisions, and arranging educational services to meet unique learning needs.

College planning is important, and we are here to help you along the way! Visit our college planning page for an overview of the resources we offer.

We offer transcript release services to both current students and alumni. Visit our transcript request page for more information or to request a transcript.

School Counseling News

The School Counseling department sends a monthly newsletter, School Counseling News by email, starting in August. The School Counseling News provides caregivers with important information about tracking academic progress and preparation for life after high school. This includes information about testing, course selection and more.

Advisory Groups

On Wednesdays, during period one, students meet in faculty-led advisory groups of about 15 classmates. Advisory groups provide an avenue for students to interact with their peers outside of their established circle of friends, to ensure that each LMH student has the opportunity to connect with a staff member, to provide an opportunity for sharing and prayer in a small group setting, and to oversee and hold the portfolio for each student’s work, which will culminate in the senior presentation.

Curriculum

Course Selection

Each year, students select their courses, both requirements and electives, for the following school year. Typically students will take time in advisory groups to select courses for the following school year. Once the advisor and student select courses, the course selection form require a parent or guardian signature. With parent/guardian approval, the course selection form is then submitted to the guidance office for the counselor’s final approval.

Cooperative Courses

  • Lancaster County Career and Technology Centers
    In addition to offering its own technology courses, LMH participates with Lancaster Career and Technology Center for technology training. Certain courses may receive college credit through a special arrangement with Harrisburg Area Community College.
  • Pre-college Music Division of Millersville University (formerly known as the Gifted and Talented Program)
    LMH also has a special arrangement with Millersville University’s Pre-college Music Division for students who desire a special music focus in their curriculum. Students can take advanced music courses at nearby Millersville University during the school day that can be added to their high school transcript. An individualized plan is designed for each student. Some of the courses offered are independent lessons with college-level instructors, music theory and composition.
