The Counseling Office at South Lyon High School is staffed with three guidance counselors, who work with students individually, or in groups, on matters relating to college, career planning, student scheduling, and personal social adjustment. Students and parents are encouraged to consult with counselors so that plans can be formulated which take into account the students' interests, abilities and achievements. Counselors work closely with administrators, teachers, parents, and students to ensure that the South Lyon High School experience will be a positive one for all involved. 
Please visit the Scholarships & More page (found under the Student Services menu - upper right sidebar) for a list of available scholarships.

Local Scholarships Available Now:  Local scholarship applications will be available for approximately one month in Student Services beginning March 14, 2018.  Local scholarships are those scholarships that are offered only to SLHS and/or SLEHS graduating seniors by local organizations/sponsors, those that may have attended SLHS in past years, or may have a family connection to SLHS.   SLHS winners are announced at Senior Honors Night on June 6, 2018.  
South Lyon High School utilizes an electronic transcript service called Parchment.  To request a transcript, current and former students will visit, create an account then place an order for their transcript to be sent to their selected destination.  The "Order My Transcript" button below will take you directly to the Parchment site.  If you would like more information, here is a guide that you might find helpful: Parchment - Quick Start Guide.
