High School Guidance
Welcome to the Hammonton High School Guidance Department. The Guidance Department is here to assist students with future planning, further education, career awareness, and problem solving. The Guidance Counselors work together to provide students with opportunities that help them realize their full educational and social potential with particular emphasis on the transition to post secondary education.
Guidance Counselors meet with students throughout the school year in both individual and/or group settings. Individual course selection meetings, along with parent input, help to ensure that students take appropriate High School courses that coincide with their future plans. The Guidance Counselors are always available on a daily basis to assist students and parents with questions, problems, and concerns. We look forward to meeting your needs as we prepare our students for the future.
The Career Center – adjacent to the Guidance Office – is available to students with a pass from their Guidance Counselor before and after school, as well as during Lunch and Study Hall periods. This valuable educational resource provides students with current information that pertains to career, college, vocational/technical school, military, and financial aid investigation. Students are also encouraged to use our on-line resources to enhance their research of career options. Two examples of valuable websites are www.careervoyages.gov and www.students.gov.
The Guidance Department communicates very effectively with colleges and other schools for further education. Senior students are given individual attention with regard to the application process. High School transcripts and other supporting documents are sent to colleges and other schools for further education in a prompt and efficient manner when requested by students or their parents. The Guidance Department hosts a Further Education Financial Aid Night every year during the month of October. A college financial aid officer will be in attendance to interact with students and parents regarding the financial aid process.
Scholarships, Pre-College Opportunities and Open Houses are posted on the Guidance page of this website. Many scholarship applications are also made available to students in the Career Center, while other applications are completed on-line by the students. Parents and students are also encouraged to visit www.fastweb.com and www.collegeboard.org to search over one million available scholarships for students.
Please feel free to contact your Guidance Counselor or the Guidance Office with any questions.

Stockton University’s School of Business is pleased to share the inaugural School of Business Summer Entrepreneurship and Business Academy (SEBA) for rising high school juniors from our region. The SEBA initiative has at its core, two major objectives:

2. As a recruitment opportunity for potential students who may wish to attend Stockton as business students
SEBA is a residential summer camp focused on the current state of business and entrepreneurship that culminates in a business plan competition among student teams. SEBA is designed to help prepare students for the future by providing a unique and exciting hands-on learning experience. The dates for the program are July 19-25, 2020. The competition will be judged by Advisory Board members, faculty, and executives from the business community. Students will receive instructions on topics including accounting, business analytics, computer science, computer information systems, finance, financial planning, hospitality and tourism, management, and marketing. They will also learn entrepreneurship, business ethics, free enterprise, teamwork, and personal skills. Students are encouraged to consider this amazing initiative and should be aware that there are scholarship opportunities available to offset the cost. .
