Mission Statement
The mission of the Forsyth County Counseling Program is to promote educational performance, providing all students with the opportunities to acquire the academic, career, personal, and social competencies necessary to achieve quality learning and life-long success.
In accordance with the Forsyth County Board of Education, FCHS is in the process of implementing the guidance and counseling model outlined by the American School Counseling Association (ASCA).


Who is your counselor?
Counselors are assigned based on the last name of the student.  The list below details which last names are assigned to each counselor.  You may also click on the name to send an email to the counselor.  You may contact your child's counselor by phone or email. If the counselor is not available, please leave a message and she will return your call at the earliest possible time (typically within 24 hours, please allow for a few days during our peak times at the beginning of the school year and the end of the school year). If your call is an emergency, please notify the counseling secretary.

Hybrid Schedule

FCHS uses a hybrid schedule.  

All FCSS high schools operate on a modified schedule that is a blending of a traditional seven-period day and a block schedule.

2008-2009 Hybrid Schedule

Classes will remain year-long, and each class will meet for the same amount of time as they would on a normal seven-period schedule. However, Wednesdays and Thursdays will be block-schedules, in which students will attend only a portion of their classes in double-length periods.


Withdrawals from FCHS
If you need to withdraw your student from school, please notify our registrar ahead of time at 770-887-8151 ext. 110171 in order to shorten the amount of time you will need to wait at the school for the process to be completed.  The registrar will prepare withdrawal forms and have them ready for the parent/guardians signature. Students must return all textbooks and media center books to the EAST campus media center before records can be released to the new school. Any fees owed will also have to be paid before records are released. We ask that students needing to withdraw come to the registrar’s office between the hours of 8am and 4pm to accomplish this task.  The student's parent/guardian who enrolled the child must also be present.  Students cannot withdraw themselves.

Exam Exemption Policy
In order for students to exempt exams the student must have earned a 90 or above in any given class.  This includes a semester or year long course.  There are no attendance requirements for an exam exemption.
