Welcome to VHS Counseling

The Vista High School Counseling Department provides students with academic, college/career, and social/emotional counseling. We believe it’s essential to educate the whole student in order to graduate young people who will contribute to a healthy society.

Every student is assigned a counselor who will advise the student on their educational goals, course planning, college and career planning and personal issues. Counselors, who provide group presentations and individual counseling, are available to help students with school and personal issues including consultations with student’s teachers and parents.

Students and/or parents may request an appointment to see their counselor during school hours. Call the counseling office for appointments. Student walk-in hours are during lunch and after school.
