Welcome to the Counseling Center



      MUSEUM COUNSELING INFORMATION

Mrs. Selberg is the counselor in the Museum Campus for students in the 9th grade. Her focus, as their support person, is to help students transition successfully from 8th grade to high school. 

Mrs. Selberg provides support in the following areas:
     Academic                       Social                       Emotional

Freshmen will participate in the following activities during the year:

COUNSELING CLASSROOM LESSONS which include:
  • Peace Circles during the first week of school
  • Character education themes and discussions with The Navigator Crew Captains. (Junior/Senior mentors)
  • Education Development Plan (EDP) - introduces career pathways and interest inventories for post high school planning

COLLEGE READINESS is a goal for all HFA students. Upon arriving on the Freshmen Campus, the expectation is that all Henry Ford Academy students will be accepted to and attend a college or university.

Getting off to a good start academically is very important and is stressed by all staff members. The importance of good grades is stressed from the beginning of freshmen year. Striving for a strong GPA is vital and will allow students more college choices in the future.

Students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities by getting involved with groups, clubs or teams they are interested in.  This encourages students to not only have fun, but to meet others who share their interests. The goal in mind is for them to become a well-rounded student. Skills and interests should be discussed with the guidance counselor through an individual appointment or during the EDP process. 

Finally, all freshmen will have the opportunity to visit a four year college located in Michigan.
