College and Career Readiness
Our department is available to provide support to all students in efforts to explore and pursue college and career opportunities. In alignment with the vision and goal of AISD, we aim to ensure that 100% of Martin High students graduate prepared for college, career, and citizenship. Each student can access Xello through his/her Rapid Identity Account. Xello provides students with various Career Interest Surveys and College Exploration to help students begin to set goals for the future.
Students can see a counselor for any reason from academic, college and career support to social emotional support. We are here to advocate for our students and to be your support system at school. If you would like to see us, please email us or come by the counseling office with a pass from your teacher.
Information on recovering lost credits
Students that have previously not passed a required course for graduation have multiple ways in which that credit can be redeemed. Students can work in Credit Recovery either during school or after school, depending on the child’s schedule. This is an online computer program that allows students to make up work from missing six weeks. Another option for redeeming lost credit is summer school. Summer School registration opens in May. Further information will be announced though the class Canvas pages.
