Guidance Office

Welcome to the Galway Jr/Sr High School Guidance Office

Welcome to the Galway Junior/Senior High School Guidance Office. We would like to thank you for visiting our webpage. We hope you find it a helpful resource.

Our Guidance Counselors are available to assist every student with career planning, college placement, educational planning, testing, social, and academic needs. Students may stop by the guidance office(s) before school, between classes, during non instructional time, or after school to see their counselor. If a counselor is unavailable, students can sign-up to have a counselor contact them.

We believe that learning is easier, more effective and less stressful when there is an environment that emphasizes: feeling safe, caring, respect, fairness, empathy and integrity. It is our goal that every student feels good about coming to school every day.

If you have any questions for the guidance office, please contact the Guidance Secretary, Camilla Colangelo at 518-882-1033, extension 3810.

Sincerely,

Kathy Morck

    SSOAR Program
    ~Students Sharing Opportunities and Responsibilities~
    Saratoga Hospital Volunteer Services Department

    Started nearly twenty years ago, SSOAR is a unique summer youth program offered at Saratoga Hospital. Open to rising high school juniors and seniors, SSOAR provides the opportunity for students to achieve community service hours while volunteering in a healthcare setting. Annual announcement and application instructions are on the Saratoga Hospital website, published in area newspapers, and emailed to surrounding high schools in early February. Interested students of at least 16 years of age may submit completed applications and will be contacted by email to set up an interview. Following a successful interview, potential SSOAR participants will complete a health assessment and attend a mandatory SSOAR Orientation held end of June. The Orientation includes the teaching of proper wheelchair usage, a Hospital tour, and an overview of Hospital policies and procedures. Students will receive their SSOAR assignments along with service guidelines, supervisor contact, badge, and vest. Students will serve at least 48 hours, generally volunteering 2 four hour shifts for six weeks. SSOAR concludes at the end of August with evaluation forms sent to those who finish the program. Upon receipt of evaluation, student and their guidance counselor receive a Letter of Commendation. This letter verifies total hours, area served, and cites specific accomplishments. SSOAR students may stay on to become regular volunteers or, if rising juniors, may be interested in serving the next summer. This program has proven to be valuable for area students, the Hospital, patients and staff, and for our greater Saratoga community.

Students will serve at least 48 hours, generally volunteering 2 four hour shifts for six weeks. SSOAR concludes at the end of August with evaluation forms sent to those who finish the program. Upon receipt of evaluation, student and their guidance counselor receive a Letter of Commendation. This letter verifies total hours, area served, and cites specific accomplishments. SSOAR students may stay on to become regular volunteers or, if rising juniors, may be interested in serving the next summer. This program has proven to be valuable for area students, the Hospital, patients and staff, and for our greater Saratoga community.

Please see the attached flyer to share with your students, educators, and parents!

    What is SLE?

    • SLE is a one-week program for current Juniors (High School Class of 2025) to visit West Point in June.
    • Students in this program get to spend the week with our cadets, live in the barracks, and eat in the mess hall.
    • Learn about West Point’s world class academics by trying 4 of our 17 academic workshops.
    • Learn about military training and becoming a Leader of Character at West Point by completing two military days to include rappelling, Zodiac boats, combatives (like Jiu-Jitsu) training and more!
    • Challenge themselves physically by attempting the Candidate Fitness Assessment, conducting physical training, and sports.
    • Complete their admissions interview with a cadet.
    • Spend the week making friends with other students from all over the US who are applying to West Point.

    All the students that I have spoken with have really enjoyed this program and they especially enjoy interacting with the cadets.

    As a reminder, RPI is re-launching (after the pandemic hiatus) several exciting STEM-focused summer programs for bright high school students from the Capital Region. 

    These programs are designed to give participants meaningful exposure to modern-day engineering, technology education, and research.

    At Badger Precollege, we create innovative programs for students who want to explore their academic interests, learn more about the college experience and meet new friends. Our programs offer a unique opportunity to help prepare students for academic and social success in high school and college.

    We think our programs are great — and our students agree! Here's what a few of them had to say about their summer 2023 experience with Badger Precollege.

    "This program really pushed me but in the best way possible. It gave me a chance to come into the field of engineering fully. We had lectures about real engineering topics and got to meet people who love this field. Griffen was also the best teacher I could've asked for! I appreciate Griffen and everyone who made this program such a fun learning experience."

    —Kaitlyn, Engineering Fundamentals and Design

    "This program helped me to connect with individuals from all around the world. I was able to be more socially active with new and previous friends. We shared our varied cultures and knowledge with each other."

    —Andre, More Than Just a Game: Sports, Media, and Culture

    "This program helped me grasp the 'college lifestyle.' I made connections outside my comfort zone and socialized with different groups of people. Academically, my class helped build my critical thinking skills and my research skills."

    —Sophie, Veterinary and Animal Science

    Boston University Summer Journalism Academy

    Dear Colleague:

    Do you have a student who is up for a fresh challenge?

    For those who are thinking about a career in communications, enjoy writing or are a visual storyteller, we have just the thing: the Boston University Summer Journalism Academy.

    Hosted by Boston University College of Communication, the Summer Journalism Academy offers high school the experience to learn the core skills in news reporting, interviewing, and writing. Students will:

    • Learn from award-winning, working journalists
    • Report on actual events around Boston or (for learn-from-home students) their hometown
    • Improve their writing, interviewing, and research skills – applicable for any major and career

    Students are challenged to step outside their comfort zone – and experience life as a working journalist. They learned how to interview strangers, ask probing questions, and assemble it in a concise story on deadline.

    Our on-campus, residential program for three weeks offers students:

    • Meet with Boston University's representative to discuss the college admissions process,
    • Explore what it's like living in a residence hall and studying in a university environment, and
    • Experience Boston museums, historical sites, and neighborhoods during free time.

    Visual storytellers can apply for our three-week in-person photojournalism program where they will learn from former Boston Globe photographer, Stephen Haines.

    Do you know students who would be a good fit for the Summer Journalism Academy? Please encourage them to learn more by visiting Summer Journalism and apply soon, as spots are limited. We review applications on a rolling basis and provide a decision within two to three weeks.

    If your student is accepted to our program and pay their registration fee in full by March 8, they will receive a special discount of $400 off the in-person tuition and $200 off tuition for our virtual program.

    Sincerely,

    Ermolande Jean-Simon

    Skidmore College

    Skidmore College’s The Young Scholars Cell Biology Institute (YSCBI) is a free summer day program incorporating a multi-disciplinary approach to introducing the next generation of students to new fields of biology they may have never considered before. In past years, we have had lectures and labs on topics such as genomics, AI, microscopy, environmental science, neuroscience, biochemistry, and more. The program is segmented into several lectures and labs daily for students to explore their interests, as well as time for counselor coordinated activities, like an Environmental Science walk through Skidmore College’s 150 acres of wooded forest called Northwoods. One of the highlights of the program is allowing students to have hands-on experiences with true high technology, such as confocal, scanning electron and transmission electron microscopy, at Skidmore’s Microscopy Imaging Center (SMIC). Other highlights include hands on experiments with experts in the field and a tour of the Tang Teaching Museum. To learn more about what our program entails, please visit our website here and our Instagram account, @young_scholars_cell_bio.

    The program runs as a day camp from 8:45 am until 4:45 pm daily from Monday, July 8th until Friday, July 12th, 2024. Students will begin and end their days in Skidmore Microscopy Imaging Center (SMIC) and be picked up at the entrance of the Center for Integrated Sciences (CIS). In order to make this program as accessible as possible to students of all backgrounds, the entire program will be free of charge, including daily free lunches. Students are only responsible for determining transportation to and from campus on their own. This program is primarily for students entering their sophomore or junior year of high school; however, we encourage all high school students to apply. Over the 4 years the YSCBI has been active, we have impacted the lives of over 50 individuals in the Saratoga region. This year, as it is our final year, will be highly selective as we plan to only admit 16 individuals. To increase the likelihood of acceptance, we suggest applying early, as applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Applications close exactly 3 months from today on May 6th, 2024, at 8:00 am.

    To apply to the Young Scholars Cell Biology Institute, we request that each student fills out an application and submits a letter of recommendation from a science teacher, an advisor, or a guidance counselor to the program. Applications will only be reviewed once both the application, and the letter of recommendation are received by the YSCBI. The letters of recommendation should be submitted directly from the recommender to Professor Domozych at ddomoz@skidmore.edu and include a description of why the student should be accepted into the program. The applications will be reviewed by myself, Professor Domozych, and the staff of YSCBI. Students are also requested to fill out a photo consent form upon acceptance.
