Welcome to Clearfield High! We are always excited to serve students and families. As a comprehensive guidance group, we follow the Utah State Board of Education guidelines of the Utah College and Career Readiness School Counseling Program. We support students with College and Career Readiness as we offer a variety of post-high school planning.

- Falcon Pathways
- Pyramid of Interventions

College-bound students should take the ACT test at least once during their Junior year. It is encouraged that students take the ACT multiple times during their Junior and Senior years. Colleges look at a combination of ACT scores and GPA to determine whether a student will be admitted, as well as for scholarship eligibility.
No Writing: $42.50
Plus Writing: $58.50 - No Utah colleges require the PLUS writing test, but it's encouraged for competitive schools

Falcon Pathways (Majors & Minors)
The CHS Smaller Learning Community model implements five broad-based Focused Areas of Study which have specialization, or majors, within them. This allows students to explore their career interests while in high school and acquire a strong foundation of coursework which may be essential for specific careers. The five Focused Areas of Study are:
o Art (A)
o Business (B)
o Health & Human Services (HHS)
o Industry (I)
o Letters & Science (LS)
Students may choose a Focused Area of Study based on individual interests. It provides students with a roadmap of courses from which to choose during their sophomore, junior and/or senior years. Within each Focused Area of Study, students identify a pathway, or set of courses to complete, similar to choosing a major or minor in college. The pathways are not restrictive. Students can change their minds later on or even switch to a new Focused Area of Study entirely.
There are three different levels of completion within each pathway: Emphasis, Minor, and Major. This provides students with the opportunity to complete requirements in more than one pathway, if they choose. Upon completion, students will receive a certificate and corresponding pin or medallion indicating their Focused Area of Study, specific pathway, and level of completion.
Students can receive multiple awards in different pathways but will only receive ONE medallion for each of the five focused areas. The medallion will represent the highest award achieved within that area. For example: Student majored in Medical (HHS) and Advanced Academic Studies (LS). Student also minored in Dance (A), English & Communications (LS), and Math and Science (LS). They will receive certificates for ALL awards and one major medallion in Health & Human Services, one major medallion in Letters & Science, and one minor medallion in Art.
Applications are reviewed annually. Senior class 2018 applications are available NOW. Please see attached application form or pick one up in the Counseling Center. 3rd term grades MUST BE INCLUDED in all applications. Once all applications have been reviewed, the approved award list will be posted on the front door to the counseling center. See your counselor for further information.

Pyramid of Interventions
At Clearfield High School, we have incorporated a pyramid of intervention that we feel works best for our school culture. We understand that prevention and intervention take place across multiple contexts. The focus or contexts of our intervention are as follows: Academic, Behavioral and Attendance.
Remind 101 is a free, safe, and simple messaging tool that helps counselors/teachers share important updates and reminders with students and parents. Subscribe by text. All personal information is kept private. Counselor/teacher will never see your phone number, nor will you see theirs.
