Meet the Carlmont Counseling Staff

Did you know that the Carlmont Academic Foundation (CAF) funds two additional counselor positions at Carlmont?

Additional counselors lower case loads and can give students more attention. Carlmont’s counselors help with academic advising, college and career prep, and social and emotional growth.
