  • UC
    • UC is sticking to their May 1st Intent to Enroll deadline. So, if you plan to attend a UC, you must submit your Intent to Enroll by May 1st. If you cannot pay the deposit at this time, you MUST contact the office of admission of the University you are planning to attend and ask them to "defer" your payment. Deferring a payment just means that they postpone the payment to a later time so you have more time to come up with the money. They are being flexible with transcripts and other verification documents. So, don't worry too much about the deadlines for documents BUT definitely submit your stuff as soon as you can. Lastly, if your family is seriously effected by COVID-19 and you need to delay your admissions to a different semester, each UC has their own policies and procedure for how they are handling this. You will need to call the admissions office at the UC of your choice.

Ms. Mendiaz is currently working with both SAT & ACT to setup additional test dates for OGHS students. She will make sure to schedule them as early as possible so that you all have time to retake the exam, if you wish to do so. 
For students who registered for an exam date but didn't end up testing, ACT & SAT will not charge you to take the exam at a later date. The money you already paid will be carried over to your new exam date. ACT & SAT are predicting that they will be able to test in July but nothing is set in stone.

Our Mission Statement: OGHS School Counselors are proactive educators who believe that all students are unique, resilient individuals who are capable of learning at high levels. Our data driven program will provide students with equitable access to academic, college and career, and social/emotional support in order to produce empowered future leaders. Upon graduation all OG students will feel confident and motivated to compete in the ever-changing world. 
Parents may make an appointment to see their student’s counselor by calling the Counseling Secretary, Beatriz Rodriguez, at (760) 291-5040. Students are encouraged to speak with their Counselor before school (7:30-7:45), during nutrition break, during student lunch, and after school until 3:15 pm. Students may also fill out a "See Your Counselor" form located in the Counseling Office to let their Counselor know they would like to meet.
Changes may ONLY be made within the first five (5) days of the semester. Changes after the first five (5) day period will only be made with the approval of an administrator. Any changes made after the first four (4) weeks of any semester will result in a Withdraw/Fail (W/F) and a W/F will be posted on the student's transcript.
