If you need to see your counselor, sign up at Mrs. Luff's (the Counselor's Secretary) desk in the Counseling Office.

Xello Career Planning is always something that is available to you.  To access this, log in to  your Clever account and look for the Xello app. After you have completed the PreACT, your counselor will visit with you individually to discuss your plans and preparation for life after high school.

WACC Applications are due in early March. There is no tuition/textbook fee for WHS students. For those interested in attending the Warrensburg Area Career Center for any one of the following careers, you will have to complete and submit an application to your counselor in March of your sophomore year. To increase your potential for acceptance into the program of your choice, keep your grades up, keep your attendance up, avoid tardy's, avoid discipline referrals, avoid truancies, and let your counselor know your career interests early on so (s)he can better support your application into a particular program. The five WACC programs available to high school students are:

  • Computer Technologies (1 or 2 year program)
  • Auto Service Technology I & II
  • Auto Collision Technology I & II
  • Construction Technology I & II 
  • Health Sciences I & II  
  • Descriptions of these programs can be found in our  Course Description Guide
