The goal for the counseling program is to ensure an equitable learning environment for all students that supports and nurtures student achievement, resilience, and development.

Comprehensive school counseling services will be offered to all students throughout the school year. These services are aimed to foster the growth of social/emotional well-being, address academic concerns, and to help students get started on college and career planning.

The types of counseling offered include individual, or one-on-one counseling, small group counseling, classroom guidance lessons, and school-wide presentations. Additional resources and suggestions for referrals to outside agencies are also available through the administration, the school counselor, or the school psychologist.

The school counseling program upholds the ethical and professional standards of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). With ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors for School Success in mind, the program uses data to help focus on academic, career, and social/emotional development for all students. The team works to build data driven decisions that directly support student success.
