At the end of the year, the Guidance Office will mail one final transcript to a college requested by each student. All transcripts, in addition to the final one, can be requested after graduation and will be $2 each. A form for requesting academic transcripts is available on the high school website under the Guidance tab.

Advisement Program

The Camden County High Advisement program is designed to provide each student the opportunity to have teachers and counselors explain the different school programs and graduation plans. This program is designed to be an on-going process throughout the student's high school career. Counselors will also work with the parents to explain what the student might expect from various programs and how these programs will enable the student to reach his/her career goals.

During the advisement process, each student will be furnished a Career Planning and Course Selection Guide. This guide includes explanations of the different diploma plans and graduation requirements leading to each type of diploma. This guide also includes an outline of the various programs of study and course descriptions. The guidance staff utilizes individual counseling, group sessions, and classroom guidance to carry out the advisement program. All students have access to both the guidance department and administrative staff for additional assistance when examining and selecting courses of study. In addition, homeroom teachers serve as advisers and resource persons for their assigned homerooms. As part of the advisement program, counselors confer with teachers concerning achievement of students and best placement leading to timely graduation. Recommendations for changes in student schedules are made to students and parents in an effort to determine the most appropriate level of instruction for future success.

Social Work Services

School Social Work Services are available to all Camden County students and their families. Occasionally students may experience academic, behavioral, or other difficulties in school that are related to personal or family problems, problems that may negatively affect a student's ability to attend school and/or to receive the utmost benefit from school. These problems may be related to issues involving divorce, death, drugs/alcohol, pregnancy, poor peer relationships, truancy, health, financial difficulties, emotional/behavioral problems, etc. The role of the school social worker is to provide assistance in helping families and students receive the support they need to more effectively manage or alleviate these problems. School social workers work closely with school personnel and outside agencies and resources to accomplish this goal.

School personnel familiar with the student generally make referrals to the social worker when there is the need for additional support to bridge the channels between home and school and community resources. However, parents and students may also contact the school social worker for assistance as needed.

The Camden County School Social Work Office is located at the Board of Education Office. (912) 729-5687
