The West Essex Regional School District Guidance Department is available throughout the day to assist students with a variety of issues, concerns and requests. 
The mission of the guidance program is to provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program addressing the academic, career and personal/social development of all students. Counselors will work with educators, parents or guardians, and the community to facilitate a support system, ensuring that all students attending West Essex are prepared to perform at the highest level and become contributing members of society.


 Calling All Seniors !!!!

   On December 10, 2015, West Essex High School will be hosting an Instant Decision Day (IDD).


What are the Benefits of IDD?

     - Instant Decision Day (IDD) allows for the college admissions counselor to put a face to the application.

- DD eliminates the agonizing wait for a response from a college.

Students can “interview the college” by asking specific college-related questions.

- A face-to-face meeting with a college admissions counselor allows the students to present themselves in a way that     cannot be seen on paper.

- Deferred students can be provided with direct guidance on how to improve status for possible future acceptance.

- Scholarships    

Who will be there?

Caldwell University, East Stroudsburg University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Felician College, Johnson & Wales, Kean University, Montclair State University, NJIT, Rider University, Seton Hall University & William Paterson University.
