School & College Counseling

MCC senior class celebrate their college acceptances and wear jerseys of their college or university while standing in front of the cross on the school campus.

MCC’s Guidance Staff empowers students to lead satisfying and productive lives by assisting them in identifying and achieving educational, and post-secondary goals. They help educate the mind, body, and spirit by managing the college application process, addressing academic issues, and working on emotional challenges and personal concerns. Counselors meet with students in group settings several times a year and individually with students at least twice a year.
