Academic Advising & Support

Academic Advising Information for 2022-24

Academic advising for the 2023-24 school year starts in mid-January 2023. The academic advising time allows GHS staff, students, and parents/guardians to discuss the student's graduation requirements, post-high school plans, interests, and opportunities at GHS. There is a lot of information, and this can be overwhelming for students and parents to navigate. We hope that the below information and resources will help students and families prepare for the academic advising process.

Academic Advising Timeline


  • Teachers meet with students and input recommendations for next school year’s placement
  • Student can, but are not required to, input their course preferences through StudentVUE in late January. This is not an official step in the academic advising process.
