The Guidance & Counseling Department is committed to supporting and assisting our students navigate the high school years and acquire the tools and knowledge they need to make informed decisions, explore opportunities, and live successful and fulfilling lives. Professional and caring school counselors advocate, collaborate and facilitate individual and system change in order to empower students to embrace their potential and to achieve their personal and academic aspirations. Students are different from one another in their capabilities, aptitudes, interests, needs, goals and values. Our comprehensive and individualized approach encompasses personal/social, career/college and academic counseling.

We believe that:

  • All students can develop the skills necessary for academic success, personal growth, positive interpersonal relationships, career development and healthy choices.
  • All students have a right to equitable treatment and access to opportunities and supports.
  • School counseling is integral to a school system’s efforts to enhance educational attainment for all students.
  • School counselors must work to design and implement programs that contribute to student success.

We encourage students who wish to meet with the counselor individually to make an appointment in advance. On “Walk-In Wednesdays,” counselors try to keep their schedules as open as possible for student drop-in meetings. In situations requiring immediate attention, students should feel free to come in to see any available counselor. Parents are encouraged to use the guidance services, calling 781-786-5820 with questions or requesting a conference when appropriate.

Scoir College Network is one of the most helpful online tools for Weston High School students. Guidance provides this tool to students for career and college exploration, access to documents needed for Career and Guidance Seminars, scholarships, and other useful information. Students create their own space in Scoir, allowing them to save colleges they are thinking about, create activity lists, and help assess where they fall in relation to other Weston students’ applications to specific colleges.

Counseling and counseling materials shall be free from bias and stereotypes on the basis of race, color, sex, gender, gender identity or expression, religion, disability, sexual orientation, national origin, ethnicity, ancestry, socioeconomic status or homelessness.

*Hello Students and Parents/Guardians,

I am thrilled to be joining the Weston team this year while Maryann Shea takes her leave. I know I have big shoes to fill but I have promised to take great care of her students in the interim. To give you some insight into my educational history, I attended Dover-Sherborn High School, pursued my undergraduate degree at UMass Amherst, and obtained my master’s degree from UMass Boston. Having a chance to be the person I needed to be while in high school inspires my work. I strive to make a difference by forming relationships and creating opportunities for my students to thrive. In my free time I enjoy playing with my dogs, watching movies, DIYing and trying different restaurants. I look forward to getting to know you all and to having a great year!

Morgan Furber

Once again, we send Maryann Shea our warmest wishes and welcome Morgan Furber with excitement. Her email is furberm@weston.org,

Information for New Families

In order to meet the needs of our current students throughout the year, we are unable to provide private information sessions and tours. We hold monthly meetings and welcome you and your students to attend. We encourage you to look at our Program of Studies and peruse the school website to find general information about the school, such as courses and sequences, clubs, and athletics. If you have specific questions after reviewing the material listed on our website, please contact Christina Kalil and she will be able to put you in touch with a counselor via email or phone.

Information Sessions

Group information sessions are held monthly for students and parents interested in visiting Weston High School. One of our counselors will discuss our program of studies, range of activities and other aspects of the school, as well as answer your specific questions. Student ambassadors are available for a tour of the school following the discussion. Please email Christina Kalil to arrange a visit.  See schedule.
