Welcome to the Guidance Department page! The counselors at Shoreham-Wading River High School are dedicated to helping students realize and achieve their personal goals. We will help students establish their educational paths and provide them with all the information necessary to succeed. We aim to create a trusting environment for our students and encourage them to speak to us with any concerns – educational or personal – so that we may help them find the appropriate assistance. Below, we have listed some important phone numbers in the event that we are not available. On this page we also included a guide for successful planning while in high school. Take a look and find out if you’re on track for success!

- New Financial Wellness Resources for Students
The SUNY Smart Track financial wellness website helps students and their families prepare not only for the academic demands of college but also to plan for the financial commitment involved in earning a degree. These tools provided by SUNY are free of charge and can aid guidance counselors and schools districts in supporting financial aid awareness among students and their families, and put them in a position to pay for college, whether they attend SUNY or not.
The website (https://www.suny.edu/smarttrack/literacy/) includes a series of brief, interactive online courses, as well as tips to prepare for college, a directory of career options in New York, information about filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, and a direct link to start the process. In addition to the tools and resources available, visitors can create a financial plan specific to the needs of 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade students.
Questions can be sent to the SUNY financial aid mailbox, email@example.com.

Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES)
The first BOCES was created in 1948 when a New York State law (The Intermediate School District Act) was passed. The law gives the go-ahead for certain small school districts to combine their purchasing power. Through sharing the costs of services and programs through BOCES, districts such as Shoreham-Wading River can now provide high-quality programs for students without higher costs to taxpayers. Shoreham-Wading River School District is a member of Eastern Suffolk BOCES.
