Welcome to the Counseling Department!

  • The Counseling Department provides academic, career, and personal/social support to all learners.

    The mission of the secondary level counseling departments is to provide a comprehensive school counseling program that addresses the academic, career, and personal/social development of all learners through a collaborative effort between the home, school, and community. The ultimate objective is to prepare learners to be productive, well-rounded, informed, and responsible contributing members of society.

    School counselors are professional school advocates who provide support to maximize learner potential and achievement. In partnership with other educators, families, and the community, school counselors facilitate a support system to ensure all learners have access to the tools enabling them to become responsible and productive citizens.
