GROWTH AND DEVELOPTMENT OF THE
GUIDANCE CENTER


Guidance Services in the early sixties were integrated in other services of the school and exercised more by religion teachers and those holding key positions. In the school year 1963-64, the office of the guidance counselor was created with father Adams, SSC as Director. This service was open not only to students but also to families. After a year Fr. Adams was transferred and for a time father Maher continued the work but later left in favor of parish work.







The office was reactivated with coming of Father Wodardz in 1965. the services were more of disciplining students rather than giving guidance. In 1967, the guidance Office became at the same time the Religious Instructions Center. The ROTC Commandant Formal testing was handled by Xavier University Guidance Center handled student discipline.









In 1971, a formal guidance program was created with Mr. Juanito Absin as the counselor. When he was sent for Scholarship in Guidance to De Salle University, Manila, and the Sisters took turns in maintaining the services at the Guidance Office. Guidance Services were extended to the two (2) Sister Schools namely, St. Maryís Academy, Lunao and Sacred heart Academy, Anakan.





In 1978, the homeroom advisers were required to take an active part in the program due to the increasing needs of the academic community. Peer group counselor was selected from among the teacherís. Among the marked achievements of the guidance office in 1978-79 was Orientation, Occupational Awareness program, and Pats affair by Section, wherein parents, administration, teachers, and students met for fellowship and dialogue. Individual and group counseling were available to all students.





At the end of the school year 1978-79, the guidance office, which was previously located in the third floor, was transferred to the ground floor of the main building.





In 1979-80, the Guidance Center, were staffed by Sr. Marife Bautista, RVM as guidance coordinator, Mrs. Bella Santiago as Guidance Counselor and Miss Zaida Reyes as psychometrician. Testing became the main emphasis of year.





The appointment of the new guidance coordinator in 1980-81 effected a more systematic implementation of the guidance program. More services rendered to the high school Department. Testing services were given to all departments and the two (2) sister schools. Teacherís professional growth was reinforced by monthly HRA sessions. Enrichment, like Leadership Training; Peer counselorís training; Career Week Celebrations; Career life Planning Seminar; Group Counseling Session; and Effective Study Habits Seminar were the highlights of this year.



With the opening of the school year 1981-82, an entrance examination for the placement was experimented using the test results as basis for sectioning. This was employed to facilitate the Academic Assistance Program (remedial program) of the school. Qualifying Examination was required to all transferees.





The following school year CKC was granted its first PAASCU Accreditation for three years. The area on the Students Services that was handled by the Guidance Center showed marked progress in the services.





In June 1989, under a new administration, there was a major change in the guidance personnel set-up. That year, programs were departmentalized. That gave birth to separate guidance counselor and an institutional psychometreian who handled the testing program. The delegation of the responsibilities effected the implementation of more appropriate program to clientele. The high school, being an accredited department serves as the heart of the guidance center, coordinating all departments.





The guidance center maintains and continuously served its clientele with its establish guidance program, until the school had passed its third PAASCU visit in 1992. The following five years marked as successive turn over of guidance counselors in which push a greater challenge with implementation of the program.











Despite of the various challenges the guidance center had undergone, the succeeding administratorís untiring support led in the realization of the long-range program of the office. The 1998 PAASCU fourth visit proved that the school maintain its standard for it gt\ranted another five year accredited status.





The purchased of additional test materials was given priority in school year 1999-2000 under the school administration of Sister Ma. Jesusita L. Bernate, RVM. In the same year the alumni association played a great role in the Career and Vocational Guidance Program, wherein the invited speaker who shared about their particular career was made possible trough the coordination of the Association.





More concern was given by the administration to the guidance center by relocating its physical set up to its adjacent room. This was done so as to meet the increasing demands and needs of the guidance office. This new set up offers a more comfortable convenient place to cater a clientele.





Furthermore, acquisition of new test materials was made in the year 2003. it was used in the guidance office to identity and provide date in testing which is very useful in the integration of curriculum and services.





The present personnel set up of the guidance office consisted of a guidance coordinator, a high school Guidance counselor, a Psychometrecian and guidance aid. Each working with its designated task and functions. The Guidance office tackles an extensive preparation for the upcoming PAASCU visit.

Exam Time


Finals week is always a hectic time for college students. You have a lot of material to study in a very short time period. So, follow these tips to make this stressful week go as smoothly as possible.

Start early. Ideally, you should have been reviewing your notes and homework all semester to avoid cramming the night before the final. However, since most college students do not abide by this rule, you should try to start studying at least one week in advance.

Know what to study. Find out what the test will cover so you will know what to study. Some finals are comprehensive and will cover material from the entire semester, while others focus only on recent material. If the test is comprehensive, be sure to study old tests and notes. Ask your professor if you donít know what material will be covered on the final.

Know the type of test. Will the final be multiple choice, essay, true/false, or a combination? This is important to know because there are different ways to study for different types of tests. For a multiple-choice or true/false test, you may have to know specific details, which requires paying more attention to detail when studying. For an essay test, you will have to study topics in a broader sense because you will have to be more analytical.

Study what you donít know. This may seem obvious, but many students study what they already know and then donít have enough time to study information that they are not familiar with.

Know how the professor tests. Has the professor previously tested on information from the book, lecture, or a combination of both? Most of the time, professors will take test questions from both, but sometimes a professor will just test from his lectures or vice versa. Be prepared!

Budget your time. Anyone would get burnt out on studying if he did it for six hours straight, so make sure you give yourself enough time to take breaks while studying. Doing so will recharge your energy.

Pick an appropriate place to study. Obviously, the library is a good place to study, but this atmosphere may be too quite for those who like to study while reading out loud. For those of you who like comfort while studying, try to stay clear of your bed. You donít want to get too comfortable and fall asleep. A good studying environment will allow you to better retain information, so pick a place that is conducive to your needs.

Study your way. Youíve been in school long enough to know which form of studying works best for you. Some people learn most efficiently by reading, some by listening, and some by writing. Just remember that repetition is key.

Stay healthy. Be sure to get plenty of sleep and eat healthy during this stressful week. If you stay up late and eat junk food, your brain will not have enough energy to function to its fullest capacity.
Finals week will no doubt be a stressful period but following these tips may help to alleviate the stress and help you receive high exam scores.

Balancing your College Schedule


Attending classes, studying, working a part-time job, participating in extracurricular activities, and finding time for friends, family and yourself can be a hard schedule for college students to balance. The following time management tips will help you stay balanced and stress-free.

1. Set Goals. Determine exactly what you want to accomplish. This may be what you want to accomplish in a day, a week, a semester, or even longer. What are your academic goals? Maybe you want to have your Psychology paper finished by the end of the week so you can enjoy your weekend. Maybe you have a goal of going to graduate school, but you must first perform well in all your undergrad classes. What are your extra-curricular goals? Do you want to join a sorority or fraternity this semester? How much time are you willing to commit to your extra-curricular activities? Do you have any personal goals? Maybe you want to expand your social circle or start exercising. By setting goals, you will be more inclined to follow through with them and accomplish your tasks.
2. Prioritize. Once you know what needs to be accomplished, you must prioritize your tasks. This means figuring out which tasks are most important and which ones can be put on hold. Be sure to stay focused on the most important task before you move on to the next ones. To help you better prioritize your tasks, you may want to number them in order of importance. For instance, if you have a paper that is due in a week and a small group project that is due in a month, it makes more sense to put your paper at the top of your priority list followed by your group project.

3. Organize. Being organized will help you achieve your goals in a timely manner. You need to organize your tasks so you will know what needs to be accomplished and when they need to be accomplished. Create a weekly calendar that includes your schedule for classes, study time, social events, club meetings, exercise time, and any other time necessary to achieve your goals. Also, be sure to include assignment due dates in this calendar so you donít miss a deadline. Abide by this calendar every week so you will develop a regular routine while learning how to manage your time.
4. Avoid Procrastination. Procrastination is the main downfall of achieving time management skills. If you plan on doing an activity, stick to your schedule; donít put it off until tomorrow. Doing so will only cause stress over trying to complete the task in time. By setting predetermined goals and prioritizing them, you will be less inclined to procrastinate.

5. Utilize Spare Minutes. Do you ever find yourself aimlessly waiting on an activity to start or on someone to meet you? If so, you need to start using those extra minutes wisely. For instance, if you find yourself waiting on a class to start with nothing to do, consider starting on those reading assignments from your last class or begin thinking about a topic for your Philosophy paper. By accomplishing small tasks while youíre waiting, you will find that you have extra time to complete those larger tasks when you actually start on them.

6. Know When Youíre Most Productive. Everyone has a time period during the day when they are most productive. Maybe you get more tasks accomplished in the morning than the evening or vice versa. Use the times when you have the most energy to accomplish the tasks that are more demanding, such as schoolwork. Use the times when you have less energy to work on tasks that are less challenging, such as running errands. You will notice that youíll get more tasks accomplished throughout the day by implementing this strategy into your time management plan.
We all probably wish that there were more hours in a day, but since that is virtually impossible, we must make the best use of the hours that we do have. By utilizing the above-mentioned steps, you will be on your way to achieving better time management skills and becoming an all-around better college student.

Dealing with School Pressure


College can be a very demanding time for students. Professors, class projects, and extracurricular activities can all contribute to a stressed-out college student. From schoolwork to social problems, students can sometimes become so overwhelmed that they do not know how to efficiently manage their stressful situations. These tips can help keep college stress at a minimum before it becomes too hard to handle.


Get organized. By becoming more organized, you can reduce your stress level drastically. Make a daily schedule of all your activities. Do you have a paper due on Tuesday? When do you have to meet with your advisor? Were you supposed to volunteer at the student center tonight? Write these things down in a personal organizer to help you commit them to memory. Having to remember when to do something or what to do can increase your stress. Another way to become more organized is by getting your supplies and desk in order. Label folders for each class and arrange your notes and assignments by topic or date so you can easily find information.


Prioritize your schoolwork. Identify what is most important. When are your assignments due? If you have a presentation to give this Monday, donít write a one-page review thatís due in a couple of weeks; prepare for the presentation first. Likewise, if you have an assignment that requires a lot of work, put it at the top of your list. When you prioritize your work, you will be more efficient in finishing your assignments and thus be less stressed.

Donít procrastinate. Putting off doing your schoolwork will only make you more stressed. If you get an assignment that is due in a month, and you donít have any other assignments to finish, go ahead and begin working on it. If you wait until right before it is due, you will be stressed about finishing it in time.


Exercise. Exercise increases your energy level and helps relieve tension. Performing some sort of physical activity for thirty minutes three times a week will considerably lower your stress level. Throw a Frisbee with your friends, walk your dog, or just go for a jog and enjoy your alone time. Yoga is also a good stress reliever. It doesnít matter what you decide to do as long as you just do something. Taking the time to exercise will help get your mind off the chaos and stress in your life.


Get plenty of sleep. You need between seven to eight hours of sleep per night in order to rest your mind and body so they can perform well during the day. If youíre like most college students, you only wish you could get that much sleep. Realize, however, that sleeping the suggested amount of time will make you more alert, less irritable, and able to manage stress more effectively. Also, keep in mind that sleeping too much is just as unhealthy as not getting enough sleep.


Eat healthy. Eating well-balanced meals will provide you with enough energy to accomplish your daily activities. Avoid foods with lots of sugar because they only provide a small burst of energy. Instead, stick with healthy foods such as vegetables and fruit. Also, in order to maintain your stress level, it is crucial for you to eat regularly. Donít skip meals.


Talk about your problems. Talking about your problems will help ease your tension and anxiety. Seek a trusted friend or see if your school has a counseling center. Talking to others will not only help you feel better, but it will also help you find more ways to deal with those problems that are causing you stress.


Adopt a positive attitude. If you are always negative, then stress will overwhelm you. By looking at things in a positive light, you will not only reduce your stress, but you will also feel better about yourself. Teach yourself to view a stressful situation as a small obstacle that can be easily overcome. Give yourself pep talks: ďI can do this. I will not stress over this.Ē


Take time to relax. To maintain peak performance and reduce your amount of stress, you should take time to relax. Donít just go, go, go; take a break. Enjoy hanging out with your friends or watch your favorite TV show. Taking the time to relax will help rejuvenate you so you can face your stressors head on.


Realize that itís okay to say ďnoĒ. If you already have a full schedule, donít attempt to add anything else to it. If your friends want you to go out at the last minute but doing so would conflict with your schedule, donít feel bad about turning them down. They will understand. They have been stressed before too.
While you will undoubtedly experience stress as a college student, following these tips may help reduce the capacity to which it occurs.
