Welcome to the North High Guidance website!

    Announcements and events are below.  Be sure to check out our class pages for information and forms.  

  • PSAT at North High

    The PSAT will be administered on Wednesday, October 14th here at North High School between the hours of 8:00 AM and approximately 12:00 PM.  Although this is a school day, teachers will not be providing instruction, neither formally or remotely.  Only students who are testing will report to the building on October 14th. While it is our hope that most juniors sit for the PSAT exam, we want to provide sophomores the opportunity to do so as well.  For juniors, the PSAT serves as practice for the SAT and as a qualifier for National Merit Scholarship consideration.  However, 10th grade students who take the PSAT do so strictly for the experience of taking the test.         

    The fee for the PSAT is $20.00 and payment can be made on-line via credit card or by providing checking account information.  Detailed instructions for making payments electronically can be found below.

    Please be aware that registration for the PSAT is a two-step process.  A payment needs to be made online.  Once a payment is submitted, you will need to print a receipt and bring it to Ms. Zehnder or Ms. Bertorelli in the Guidance Office.  You will then be given a PSAT bulletin, which includes a practice test, and an admission ticket for the exam.  This must be done by Friday, October 2nd.      

    Those testing should report to North High on Wednesday, October 14th by 8:00 AM.

  • This month's College Spotlight is:

    Arcadia University

    “Arcadia is the Northeast's best kept secret! It is a small, quaint, closed campus in northeast Philadelphia. Built upon a previous estate, it features a castle which is the landmark of the university. Being close to Philadelphia, we were allowed the opportunity to enjoy going to the city, while not having to stay in the city. The university has a strong community feel -- I would walk on campus and say hi to almost everyone...Clearly you can tell I loved my experience at Arcadia. At first, I felt as though it wasn't a right fit. All my friends went to big party schools and it felt like I was missing out on something. Come to realize, I was right where I needed to be.” Claudia S, North High Class of 2014
