Welcome to the Guidance Office at Thomas Heyward Academy. Our aim is to make this exciting time for our graduating seniors and their transitions to college run as smoothly as possible. The Guidance Office provides resources, information, encouragement, and support as students move through the process of deciding what comes next as they prepare to graduate from high school. Please use the links to the right for assistance in beginning your college planning.
The role of the THA is to help students acquire the skills, information, and attitudes that will enable them to have productive and satisfying lives. THA provides guidance as each student seeks his or her own intellectual and personal maturity.
College counseling at Thomas Heyward Academy is designed to be personal and individualized. We begin working with rising 8th graders to help plan for their high school years. We are here to assist, encourage, challenge and support students as they set goals and make decisions.
At THA, our goal is to prepare our students for the real world, whether it be going off to college, in the military or directly into the work force, we will be there every step of the way.
