The Guidance Office has three main focuses for the students at WA: academic advising, career preparation, and mental health advocacy.
Valerie Renshaw and Stephanie Seeley are the Guidance Counselors at Washington Academy. Their primary duties include academic and post-secondary advising, crisis counseling, and student advocacy. Joanne Ausprey, College Placement Specialist, is an additional contact for students during the college and university application process. Junia Lehman, Guidance Office Manager and Registrar, is the main contact for questions pertaining to grades and permanent records.
If you are looking for your high school transcript, you will need to fill out a Transcript Request Form. Please be aware that the Guidance Office will only be open one day per week during the summer months.
Tutoring is available through our National Honor Society to any student. Please contact the Guidance Office directly to schedule.

There are many scholarship opportunities available to graduating seniors. Please check the Guidance Office for current scholarships and applications. Daily announcements and the Washington Academy Facebook page provide regular updates about many different outside awards.
Many online scholarship searches are available. Please remember never to pay for these searches. Washington Academy does not endorse any particular online scholarship search. However, you may complete an individual profile at either www.scholarships.com or www.fastweb.com and scholarship information will be emailed to you on a regular basis. Keep in mind that email addresses are commonly shared.
In addition to the many outside scholarships available, all WA seniors will receive a separate scholarship application packet each spring that will be used to award scholarships administered by Washington Academy. Daily announcements and Facebook notifications will provide information about when this distribution will take place and deadlines for submission.
Please contact the Guidance Office for additional information regarding scholarships at (207) 255-8301 ext. 212.
