Guiding The Way

Individual academic advising is an integral part of the Louisville experience. Each student is assigned a grade-level advisor who will meet with her at least once per quarter and who will closely monitor her academic progress. Advisors work closely with teachers and parents when students are experiencing academic difficulty.

To supplement individual academic advising, the Guidance Department also provides a variety of services which include community referrals, a series of workshops designed exclusively for freshmen, lunchtime career speakers and The Freedom from Chemical Dependency Program. The advisors are available for conferences or questions. See the contact information on the right.

Counseling Programs and Events

Our Counseling Department organizes many special programs throughout the year to promote wellness, career education and life skills. Read about them below:

List of 4 items.

  • Career Fair

    Louisville High School hosts a bi-annual Career FAir in St. Louis Hall. The professionals, including many alumnae, bring with them a trade-show atmosphere as they engage students in conversations about the excitement, challenges, and educational requirements of their careers. This format allows students to browse the Expo to ask questions, make connections, and discover new interests. A wide range of fields is represented by both men and women for a broad and realistic experience for the students.

    Alumnae who participate in the event enjoy their productive visit to their alma mater. Lynda Murray ’83 shared her Interior Design career with our students. She stated, “I was very impressed with the girls. I received GREAT questions… very articulate!!” Clinical psychologist Teri Maloney ’76 agreed. “The girls were great – very engaging and intelligent. I had fun!” Ventura County Superior Court Judge Patricia Murphy ’80 graciously found a substitute for the bench that day as she was “looking forward to returning to Louisville High School and pleased to participate.” Other Louisville alumnae in attendance have included attorney Shivaun Cooney ’94, author Kelly Brown ’84, and pediatric nurse Laurie Newton ’81

    The impact of the Career Expo on the students is significant and evidenced by sophomore Brittney Daniels, who discussed her medical career aspirations with Children’s Hospital nurse Laurie Newton ’81. Brittney will soon graduate from UCLA Nursing School and begin her career.
     
    From writers and directors to FBI agents and an ob-gyn, there was something for everyone to explore. Louisville is grateful to all of our outstanding alumnae who participate.
  • Coffee With the Counselors

    Parents/guardians are invited to "Coffee with the Counselor" events, which were hosted three times during the school year. Hosted in the mornings in the Library, our counselors along with guest specialists address the concerns of parents as they navigate their daughter's high school years.
  • Life After Louisvile

    We were excited to have Louisville's own staff members host different sessions for students about Life After Louisville. Some of the topics included understanding credit and how to follow a basic budget, creating a resume, utilizing college resources, the power of networking, finding your future career, and much more. We are looking forward to growing this event as we host it every two years.
  • Wellness Wednesdays

    A successful addition to their repertoire was the Wellness Wednesday events. Each month we planned an activity for students (and Faculty and Staff!) to unwind during lunch and have some fun. Some examples include bringing a nutritionist on campus to teach students about healthy diets and lifestyles, a yoga instructor to offer a brief yoga session, and opportunities to create vision boards, stress balls, and play Bingo! Two of the events with huge impact were the puppy visits that happened right before finals both semesters! We know students are stressed about finals but what better way to de-stress than playing with puppies!
