The Department of School Counseling offers programs and services to help each student achieve his or her best in school and prepare for future success. Counselors meet with students individually and in groups to help them with educational planning, vocational and career exploration, decision making, as well as, personal issues that affect school performance and future plans. They work with students to help them gain confidence and maintain a positive attitude towards their abilities and their future. Counselors also collaborate with other staff members on Freshman Transition Teams, Child Study Team meetings, and Planning and Placement Teams. The Department also administers a variety of tests and inventories designed to help students explore their interests and strengths. These can help students think about what they might find interesting and rewarding in future studies and careers.

The Department of School Counseling Services welcomes and strongly encourages communication with parents and guardians. Counselors can be reached at 848-1285.

2014 Registration for Montville High School Sophomores and Juniors

All students who registered for ECE courses last week during the pilot program should now go to the Survey web site to complete the follow-up survey if you have not yet done so.  If you need the web site please see Dr. Phillips

Montville High School has been asked to pilot the new course registration procedure for the UConn ECE Program.  For the pilot program UConn has stated that all MHS students who complete their ECE registration during the week of April 15–18 ONLY (Tuesday through Friday) will have their entire ECE fee for all ECE courses they are taking in 2014-15 waived.  This is a savings of $90 to $110 per course. 

In order to complete the process, students must first complete the Consent Form and bring it Dr. Phillips for his signature by Friday April 11.  Students will then upload the scanned or photographed form to the ECE website, during the Fee Waived Registration days April 15 -18, and fill out all of the registration information.  Consent forms and information about the registration process were mailed two weeks ago to all students who signed up for ECE courses for next year.

Fees will only be waived if students take part in the pilot registration and complete it April 15-18.  Students who start the registration process after April 18 will pay full cost.

Students who did not register during 4/15-18

Any students planning to take ECE courses next year and who did not register last week during the pilot registration period can do so starting Tuesday, April 22. 

The first step is for students to complete the Consent Form and obtain all the signatures.  They can then access online ECE registration through the ECE website  There will be a button on the front page that will take them to the registration landing page.  This page will have step-by-step instructions, a tutorial and the phone number for the ECE 7:00 am- 7:00 pm registration helpline (1-855-382-UECE).  Once students have reviewed the instructions, they click the “Apply Now” link and complete the application. Students must be prepared to upload their signed consent form before starting this process.

Registration for ECE is a two-step process. Once the online application is submitted, students will receive two follow-up e-mails.  This applies also to students who submitted the application last week.  One is to issue their UConn NetID which is used to enroll in courses.  The second is the link to enroll in courses.  The NetID e-mail will take a couple of days.  The application approval/course enrollment e-mail will take a couple of weeks.

Students who registered last week as part of the UConn ECE pilot project will have their fees waived.  Students should see me with any questions or if they need to get a Consent Form.


On-Line Registration:

  • When your students complete the application phase of the online registration process, they will create their own user ID and password to set up their account. 
  • Once they have completed the application process, they will receive their UConn NETID and password.
  • This will be the ID and password they will use from this point forward. 
  • Students will receive an e-mail from UConn with their NETID and password information. 
  • They will use their NETID and password when enrolling in their courses, paying their fee bills and accessing UConn online resources such as HuskyCT and the libraries.
