Welcome to the EHS Counseling Website!
Emerging Health Professionals Information Session
The Emerging Health Professionals Program provides high school seniors with an opportunity to experience a variety of health care careers in a hospital setting and take Penn State science course for college credit. Students spend three days a week rotating among various departments of a hospital. Students will experience these departments throughout the three Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network facilities. Representatives from LCTI and Penn State University will be visiting Emmaus High School on Friday December 19, 2018 at 1:00pm to explain the program in detail and supply applications to interested and qualified juniors for the 2019-2020 academic school year. Interested students should stop by the counseling office to sign up for the presentation.
If you would like more information about the program, please see the EHP page on LCTI’s website, which can be found here: http://www.lcti.org/prospective-student-course/emerging-health-professionals/.

2017-2018 Grading Scale and GPA Calculation Changes
For the past two years, an instructional leadership team in East Penn has been working to examine our district-wide assessment practices and evaluate them in terms of their efficacy and equity. Through that process, the secondary grading scale and high school grade point average calculations emerged as an area in need of revision. For these reasons, we have decided to modify the grading scale and calculation of student GPA to be more consistent with other schools both regionally and nationally. This change will go into effect beginning with the 2017-18 school year. For more information regarding these changes please click here.
The counseling office is pleased to continue to offer the Naviance system to our students and their families. Naviance is the preferred postsecondary planning resource for EHS counselors. We encourage all families to utilize the resources found in Naviance. Students receive an introduction each school year on how to use and navigate Naviance Student. Below is a link to access Emmaus High School’s Naviance Student site. Students need to log in using their ID number as their email and their EPSD password as the password. Parents must register using a registration code, which can be obtained from your child’s counselor. Once registered, parents are able to input an email address and create a password for future use.
