Academic Advising

Academic advising is an important step in the education process. It is a chance for counselors, faculty, parents and other caring adults to partner with students in a discovery process. Successful academic advising encourages students to take ownership of their academic journey by:
 
  • Exploring dreams and passion areas.
  • Considering individual learning styles – highlighting strengths and opportunities
  • Identifying short-term and long term goals and the accompanying academic plans
  • Learning about available programs, courses and opportunities
  • Developing successful time management, organization, and study skills

Your school counselor can also assist with providing tutoring lists, inquiries regarding academic supports and resources like honors courses or exceptional learners, or general tips for success in the classroom.  

Scheduling for 2020 - 2021

Current 6th and 7th grade students made their elective choices in February.   In mid to late April, parents will receive a Skylert notifying them when course selections will be viewable in Skyward.  This will be the opportunity for parents and students to view the courses they are signed up to take for the 20-21 school year.  Parents wishing to make a change to the courses for the upcoming school year should email their student's guidance counselor at Fishers Junior High.

The new graduation program called Pathways is required for the class of 2023 and beyond.
