About Us

The Guidance Department assists students in dealing with academic decisions, career plans, personal problems, social skills, and other areas in preparing the student to take her/his place in our society. The Guidance Department is located behind the main office area.

During the school year, the counselors have group meetings and individual conferences to address the issues of each year of high school and to help students make good decisions. Counselors meet with juniors and seniors regularly to begin the college orientation process. They provide support to all students throughout the year, and have a wealth of information that will help students plan their future. Students should feel free to make appointments with their counselor when they need advice on any problem. 

AP Exam Registration

Belmont High School is excited to announce that all advanced placement students will order their AP exams through Total Registration – a tool that allows you to register and pay for AP exams online. 

Online Exam registration will begin on Monday, January 28th, 2019 at 8:10 AM and end on Tuesday, March 5th, 2019 at 3:00 PM. In order to register, students should click on the link provided on the school website or visit www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/220123 to register.  To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the pdf of the confirmation page that is provided at the end. We know that parents may desire to register their students for exams. We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered.

Belmont High School is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online at the time of registration. Upon the completion of registration, the student will be prompted to pay either by credit/debit card online or by mailing payment to Total Registration. No money will be accepted by Belmont High School. Students who want to pay by mail should mail their payment to Total Registration by March 5th to ensure payment is made prior to the deadline.
