Guidance Services include test administration, college and career guidance, and course scheduling.

Test Administration

DA offers the ACT, SAT, PSAT, AP exams and CLEP (College Level Examination Program). For dates and additional information, contact our guidance counselor.

College & Careers

College & Careers is a 1-semester class required for all 10th grade students. These students are led in a series of explorations into knowing themselves better, utilizing a variety of inventories and tools such as the Career Key, along with investigating current and future career possibilities. Individual counseling is also available to assist families with exploring post-high-school options.

Course Scheduling

Each spring, students in grades 8 – 11 select their classes for the following year. Our guidance counselor meets individually with each 8th grade student to make their first high school decisions. Additionally, 11th grade students are presented with a credit evaluation to ensure that they will meet graduation requirements.


An invaluable tool for the entire DA community, RenWeb administrative software enables real-time gradebook access and gives parents the ability to see exactly how their child is doing. The school calendar, daily announcements and a wealth of other information is accessed through a secure log-in site for parents, students and staff.
