COVID-19 UPDATE:  The Millis High School Counseling Staff is prepared to help with resources and guidance during this challenging time.  Please take care of yourselves and follow advised precautions (wash your hands, practice social distancing, etc.), and make sure to take care of your physical and emotional health.  Email us with any questions or concerns you have along the way.  We are here to help.  

We know many of you have questions about the college process, standardized testing, and what it will all mean for current seniors and juniors.  Below are links to some documents that we hope will help, along with our School Counseling Department plan while we are out of school (which contains additional resources you can use to navigate this challenging time):

Millis High School Counseling Department COVID-19 Action Plan

School Counseling Updates and for Millis High School Seniors - Class of 2020

School Counseling Updates for Millis High School Juniors - Class of 2021

The National Association of College Admissions Counselors (NACAC), is providing an online tool as a resource for information about changes in college admissions events, deposit dates, and more as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.  The tool will update in real-time as they receive input from colleges and universities.

Please make sure to double check individual school websites to verify any information you find in the NCACA portal.


The Middle and High School Counseling staff have created a Positive Supports Google Classroom, where each day they will be posting a new idea/activity for you to try.  The hope is that this will help combat feelings of boredom and help you manage your feelings as we go through the next few weeks virtually together.  You should have received an email with a join code from Mr. Mullaney, but if you didn't reach out to one of the counselors and we'll provide it for you.

Services and Programs Offered:

Academic Counseling: Counselors work with students throughout the high school to help provide programs that suit their academic needs. They also help students with college and/or career planning. Counselors interface with students, parents, and teachers regarding academic issues needing attention. Parent conferences, pre-referral team meetings, and weekly progress reports are examples of these services. Continuing emphasis is placed on developing improved communication, organizational, and time management skills.

Post Secondary Planning-College/Career Counseling: Counselors guide students through the college application process, helping them link their strengths and interests to colleges and careers. Information is given regarding college admissions, requirements and organizing the college search.

Personal Counseling: Counselors provide support for students with personal problems and concerns. Conversations with students are confidential UNLESS the student is being abused or is at risk of hurting himself/herself or others.

Seminars/Groups: The School Counseling Department conducts seminars to discuss topics relevant to each grade level.

Parent Nights: Parent nights are currently held for 11th and 12th grades, along with a high school transition night for 8th grade students and parents. Helpful information on relevant topics is discussed and distributed at Parent Nights.

STAT (Student Teacher Assistance Team): Counselors meet regularly with the principal, the school nurse, school adjustment counselor, school psychologist and selected faculty members regarding student progress or concerns. Parental comments and concerns are always welcome.
