High School Planning


    September 2021

    Dear Eighth Grade Parent/Guardian,

           This is an important decision-making year for you and your eighth-grade student.  This school year, information will be presented regarding the courses and programs available at Henry P. Becton Regional (https://www.bectonhs.org/)   Every eighth-grade student will have an individual conference with their guidance counselor where long and short-term goals will be discussed and a tentative schedule of courses for their freshman year at Henry P. Becton Regional High School will be selected.

    If you would like to explore high school options other than Becton Regional High School, I will be sending periodical updates to students and parents of open houses and application processes.  Due to Covid-19, this will not be a typical year and the admissions process maybe be different than the past.

    Any new information I receive will be posted outside the guidance office and sent out via school blast. I look forward to working with you and your child in planning a challenging and rewarding high school experience.


    Kerry Leto, School Counselor
