Academics

Academic Counseling

Mullen High School counselors help students discover and maximize their academic and social strengths so that they are prepared for college and life beyond high school.

Academic & Personal Counseling Department

Counselors meet with parents and students in large group presentations throughout the year. Freshman Parent Night is held the first few weeks of the school year to provide an overview of the upcoming four years and share helpful insight into the Mullen culture. Sophomore Parent Night is held the first week of January to discuss the important work being done as sophomores get to know themselves better and starts the conversation of where students want to go after graduation. This meeting includes the College Counseling Team. Junior and Senior Family nights are hosted by the College Counseling Team, in preparation for life after graduation.

  • Freshman Year

    The freshman year is focused on laying the foundation for growth as a student and young adult. Adjusting to the expectations presented in high school as well as the responsibilities afforded to you to make decisions and grow in your self-advocacy skills. Understanding how your choices and actions affect the future, guidance will focus on making healthy decisions while gaining support to navigate you on a path towards college and beyond.
  • Sophomore Year

    The sophomore year will present you with a different learning curve: you are already familiar with Mullen, most of our teachers, and how things generally work around school. Now the focus shifts slightly from academics (although still important) to yourself. Learning more about who you are and what you want to do when you grow up. Using this year to prepare you for the academic and personal choices you have in your near future.
  • Junior Year

    The junior year of high school is focused on putting what you have learned about yourself as a student and person into an action plan for your future. Although this year has a reputation for being the most difficult academically, the hope is to find a balance. While this may or may not be true for everyone, it is an important and busy year for all students. However, if you stay proactive and have a positive attitude, junior year does not have to be overly stressful.
  • Senior Year

    The senior year will likely be challenging, exciting, and full of fun. This is your time to look back upon your accomplishments and look forward to your future. Yet, it is also a time to focus on the present, which will include many decisions and deadlines. We know that the transition process can be intimidating and stressful. We hope that this list of things to do in your senior year will be helpful to you as you navigate through the year.
