Welcome to Council Rock North, Class of 2027! 

As your school counselors, our goal is to work collaboratively with you and your parents and to provide support in your academic endeavors, emotional growth and social development. The Council Rock High School North Counseling & Career Center is an excellent resource and we trust you will take advantage of it throughout your high school career. It is located on the first floor east, just beyond the main entrance, and contains many resources on college and career exploration. You will also find information on scholarships there.
