Welcome to CYBER GUIDANCE, a virtual high school guidance office I created, to help provide future education direction for students. All of the pages and links are based on all of the questions I’ve received throughout my career.

Private Counseling

I now provide private future planning counseling on an appointment basis. Planning for your future should start as early as 8th grade. I have a schedule and plan for all students, from grades 8-12, to maximize their academic potential as well as their activities and experiences, in order to provide access to the desired educational future. Please email me at bobturba@gmail.com for more information.
