Guidance Office

Graduation

Welcome to the Galway Jr/Sr High School Guidance Office

Welcome to the Galway Junior/Senior High School Guidance Office. We would like to thank you for visiting our webpage. We hope you find it a helpful resource.

Our Guidance Counselors are available to assist every student with career planning, college placement, educational planning, testing, social, and academic needs. Students may stop by the guidance office(s) before school, between classes, during non instructional time, or after school to see their counselor. If a counselor is unavailable, students can sign-up to have a counselor contact them.

We believe that learning is easier, more effective and less stressful when there is an environment that emphasizes: feeling safe, caring, respect, fairness, empathy and integrity. It is our goal that every student feels good about coming to school every day.

If you have any questions for the guidance office, please contact the Guidance Secretary, Camilla Colangelo at 518-882-1033, extension 3810.

Sincerely,

Kathy Morck
High School Guidance Counselor
