About Frontier Guidance

Frontier’s School Counselor, Kathy Bassett, is here to assist your child in a variety of ways! Her main goal is to help students be successful during their high school career.

Please feel free to contact the guidance department via e-mail or a phone call. We do ask that you set up an appointment if you would like to meet in person.

Students are always welcome to stop by the guidance office. Students can sign up in the binder in the main office to see Mrs. Bassett.

Indiana’s 21st Century Scholars program is an early-college promise program designed to make college more affordable for students. You may only apply for this opportunity during 7th or 8th grade. Once accepted you must complete the 12 items of the student success program during high school. You can visit the website below for more information and to apply. 

The state of Indiana requires every student to complete the graduation pathways checklist in order to graduate. There are three required buckets in which a student must successfully complete at least one item in each bucket.

Our local community continues to be generous and supportive in awarding our seniors with local scholarships. There will be a meeting with seniors during December to give out all information and directions with requirements for each scholarship. After the meeting is held, all local scholarships can be found on Naviance.

There are other opportunities for scholarships that students are encouraged to seek. Emails are sent out to students as scholarships become available.

Please reach out to Mrs. McMindes with any questions regarding scholarships. 219-984-5437 x.1222 or
