On Monday, September 11, 2022, York County Alliance for Learning (YCAL) will open registration for thirteen of their fall career exploration programs. These programs are held at various sites in the county and allow students an opportunity to learn more about a specific career field, interact with professionals in that field, find out about the education needed for success in that career, see various positions and pathways within that field, and ask questions to help clarify their interest in that career. These programs can also be used by juniors to meet a field experience requirement for the graduation project. 

The in-person programs that you can register for beginning Monday, September 11th are in Healthcare, Marketing, Law, Automotive Technology, Performing Arts, Athletic Training, Accounting, Engineering, Criminal Justice/Forensics, Respiratory Care, Financial Services, Media Careers,, and Information Technology. There are also a large number of virtual programs that are in the YCAL library from previous career exploration programs. These can be watched by both students and parents when convenient and also used by juniors for a field experience. 

To find out more information about a specific program or to register, please use the following link: https://ycal.us/students/mentoring-program/. Posters describing each program will also be hung in the commons area and appear in relevant classrooms. If you have any questions, please address them to the counseling office.

Canvas Parent App Instructions

Canvas is the Learning Management System that most SHS students will use to view and submit their classroom assignments for their in-person and digital days. All SHS students are assigned an account and parents are eligible to have an “observer” account which gives them access to view their student’s courses, assignments, due dates, etc. It is highly encouraged that parents set up this account. Additionally, this year the SHS Counseling Office also has a page on Canvas which parents can access through an observer account.  For more information and instructions on how to create your observer account, please click here.
The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is continuing to offer services and assistance to students and their families. There are a variety of interventions and programs available, including counseling assessments through True North, school-based counseling through Pennsylvania Comprehensive Behavioral Health (PCBH), and monitoring and mentoring programs through the school. If you are interested in any of these services, please contact your child's school counselor.
