Sarasota High School Guidance Counselors are available for assistance in the areas of academics, careers, social/personal, and community service.  Students may meet with Guidance Counselors to discuss potential careers and academics required to achieve their goals.  The high school years can be difficult to navigate with peer and adult relationships.  Our Guidance Counselors can assist both parents and students with strategies to enhance their social and emotional well-being.

  4. Physical exam within the previous 12 months signed and dated by a physician. (Note: Proof of physical if previously enrolled in a Florida Public School.)
