Our mission in the Fruitport High School Guidance Office is to provide students and parents with the resources and support needed for making educational and personal decisions and to help facilitate school success through one-on-one and classroom contact.    

We offer a safe place, where students have an opportunity to discuss, explore and evaluate their abilities, needs, difficulties and hopes with someone who cares and can help.  We offer parents an opportunity to identify and explore their concerns for their children in a professional and confidential setting.  We offer FHS staff help in understanding the obstacles some of our students face in being successful.

Some of the Guidance Office activities throughout the year include:

  • Classroom Guidance Lessons at all grade levels.
  • Financial Aid Night for parents of seniors.
  • Junior Parent Night.
  • Individual planning appointments for all juniors and their parents.
  • Yearly review and update of students' Educational Development Plans.
  • Student scheduling.
  • Eighth Grade Orientation Night.
  • Short-term individual counseling.
  • Referral information.
  • Scholarship Information

Career Cruising

Career Cruising is a Web-based career guide that is available to all Fruitport High School students.  Through classroom guidance lessons in Middle School and in High School, FHS students learn the many features of Career Cruising and how to complete an Educational Development Plan (EDP). 

Ours is a fast changing world, with a multitude of career options.  Many of the jobs of today did not exist ten years ago, and this trend will continue.  Students need a good understanding of their career options and information on how to achieve their career goals.  Career Cruising is designed for individual, self-directed use.  It's easy and fun to use and provides career matching, career exploration, post-secondary education planning and EDP development. 

We encourage all students to spend extra time using this program at home.  While formal instruction is provided to freshmen and sophomores, we require that juniors and seniors update their EDP on their own.  Juniors should update prior to their individual Junior Counseling Appointment in February and seniors by January of senior year.

It is designed to serve students who want to accelerate or go beyond the MMC requirements and students who need to individualize learning requirements to meet the MMC requirements.
