Welcome to Hunter College High School's Counseling Office!


The goal of the Counseling Department is to help students benefit from every aspect of the school experience. The staff is available to students, parent(s)/guardian(s) and teachers for discussion of students’ academic, personal or future planning concerns.

The primary role of the counselor is to assist students in the development of awareness of themselves and their environment and to translate that awareness into actions which enable them to fully realize their potential.
