Counseling Center

The Counseling Center is responsible for coordinating student participation in our academic program and extracurricular activities to meet graduation requirements and prepare for college or careers after high school.


Separate from enrollment, registration is the selection of courses for an academic year. Each student must complete an Amador High Course Selection Form according to their grade level. The counselors are available to help you select courses aligned with your career and/or college objectives.
