Welcome to the South Aiken High School Counseling Department!
SUMMER 2020 COUNSELING APPOINTMENTS AND TOURS
Due to COVID-19 concerns, the SAHS School Counseling Department will not be accepting 1:1 appointments or providing tours at this time. We are continuing to monitor the situation and seeking guidance on safe and appropriate procedures and safeguards to hopefully return to accepting appointments and scheduling tours towards the end of July/early August. Please check with us during that time to see if our availability has opened for these appointments.
Mrs. Jobina Wiemer is the only available counselor over the summer, and she continues to work remotely. You may contact her via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ATTENTION SENIORS - INSTRUCTIONS FOR ORDERING FINAL TRANSCRIPTS THROUGH PARCHMENT
Seniors planning to attend college in the fall must request their final transcript to be sent to their college of choice via Parchment, an online digital credential service. Students may place the final transcript order before grades are posted, but should select "Hold for Grades." The ordered transcripts will be sent when final grades are posted. For more detailed instructions on how to request a final transcript NOW, click here.
For instructions on how to create a Parchment account, click here.
*NOTE: Final Transcripts must be submitted to your college choice in order to receive any and all state scholarship funding.
BEST OF LUCK TO MS. RODEN
The South Aiken Family is sad to announce that Mrs. Danauta Roden has accepted a counseling position for next school year closer to her home. We wish her the best of luck, but we know she will always be a Thoroughbred! If you are a current student of Ms. Roden's and need a counselor, please contact Mrs. Jobina Wiemer at email@example.com.
SCHEDULE CHANGES FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR
The SAHS School Counseling Office is not accepting student schedule change requests for the 2020-21 School Year at this time. Students will have the opportunity to adjust schedules in August. Watch and listen for upcoming instructions on how to make a schedule change.

Parents: PSAT test results are in! The students were given their test booklet in homeroom to begin practice for the SAT/ACT college entrance tests. The PSAT test results have been entered and in order for your child to see their results, they will need their log in information for Khan Academy. If they haven’t created an account yet, please encourage them to do so. Also, if they have forgotten their password please have them retrieve it by having Khan Academy send a link to their email address to reset it.
Students: Please become familiar with these items: Home address, Birthday, Student email address, and Parents' email address.
