Welcome to the Ryle High School Guidance Office! 

In accordance with the school mission statement of Larry A. Ryle High School and within the gramework of the American School Counselor Association's National Model, the guidance program is designed to allow the school counselors to provide services to every student.  The counseling program is a collaborative effort that involves not only the counselors themselves, but also the parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff.  The focus is "the development of the total student" which addresses academic development, career development, and personal-social development. 

Counselors:

  • Provide counseling for students with personal concerns
  • Provide academic counseling
  • Provide informational services for parents and teachers
  • Assist students with college and career planning
  • Serve as a consultant to parents of assigned students
  • Collaborate with and serve as a resource person to faculty, staff, and administration
  • Promote an educational climate in which students can grow intellectually and emotionally

9th Grade Information

Freshman will be taking a CERT test throughout the year. 

 The CERT test is a benchmark assessment and is helpful in preparing students for optimal success on the ACT exam.  The CERT test is an ACT-like exam with tests in English, Math, Reading, and Science and will feature a detailed summary of each student’s performance. Students and their teachers will have access to online tutorials that address individual student needs.  It is worth noting that a typical ACT Prep course can cost as much as $250.  The CERT program is being provided by the Boone County School District to our students and provides practice throughout the years leading up to the ACT taken in the junior year of high school.  This is a wonderful opportunity for students to begin increasing their future ACT scores as freshmen and sophomores!
