Wake Tech recruiter here: An admissions recruiter from Wake Technical Community College will be on campus Friday, April 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Media Center Computer Lab to assist seniors with on-site admissions.

You will receive a pass prior to your appointment date. If you have questions or need assistance, stop in Career Services to see Ms. Manning or email email@example.com.
Attention, seniors! Seniors who have received offers of academic, athletic or extracurricular scholarships need to bring in copies of the offers to Student Services by Thursday, May 11. Bring in the offer even if you do not plan to use the scholarship. Note at the top whether you plan to use the scholarship. We will announce the scholarships students are using at Senior Awards Night on May 22. Questions? Contact Mr. Small.

Warning of a scam: The Wake County Public School System wants to make students and families aware of a scam company, College Level Exam, which is targeting high school students. The company is reaching out to students to sell a DVD claiming to assist with financial aid and scholarships, as well as college entrance. Families are being charged a large sum for services that WCPSS and Enloe provide for free. If you are looking for information about financial aid and scholarships, please check out this page.

You'll find Enloe's Student Services Department in the East building — the first door on the right as you enter the East.
Why speak with a counselor? We’re here for you. Whatever concern students have — from academic to personal to career — you can come to your counselor and find a place where you can share your concern and get help in addressing it. Students can make an appointment request for any time of the school day. Your counselor will try to meet the request. We do try to make sure we talk with you during times when it least affects your class schedule.
When you come from class to see a counselor, be sure to let your teacher know about your appointment and have the teacher fill out a hall pass so you won’t be marked absent. We are also willing to schedule meetings before or after school. You can reach us through these links:
A-Da: Ms. Greene
De-Ja: Mr. Small
Je-Moq: Mrs. Koch
Mor-Sc: Ms. Saviello
Sch-Z: Ms. Kirkpatrick
Please know that if you feel you’re in an emergency and need to speak with someone, you’re always welcome to come to Student Services. Depending on who is available, you may speak with your counselor or another counselor. Feel free to contact us throughout the school year. Student Services is not just our name — it’s our mission!
College Visits: College Admission Counselors visit Enloe's Student Services office periodically throughout the year. These visits are for the students only and will take place during the students' lunch times. Please see calendar below for dates and times.
