The Wissahickon High School Guidance Department supports all students academically and developmentally. Counselors collaborate with high school staff members, parents and outside agencies in servicing our students. All students are assigned alphabetically to a school counselor by last name.
In addition to meeting with students individually and in small groups, the counselors deliver a developmental guidance curriculum to all students based upon standards and best practice.

Importance Notice About WHS Transcripts
Beginning in the Fall, in order to expedite the process of WHS sending transcripts to colleges, Wissahickon High School transcripts will no longer include a listing of activities and awards. We thoroughly researched how colleges prefer to receive a list of co-curricular activities for students by contacting colleges and high schools and found that colleges do not rely on this information or need this information from the high school to process applications. Students should continue to report all school and community-based activities on the application and/or include a resume. This practice is common among many other high schools and our students will not be disadvantaged in any way by this decision.
FAFSA Completion Night – Senior Parents Only
Wissahickon will hold a completion workshop for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for senior parents on Wednesday, November 16th. The workshop will be held in the WHS Library. There will be two available start times – 6PM and 7PM. Registration is now open. Seats will be available on a first-come, first serve basis.
