Counseling Department

Counseling is a process of helping people by assisting them in making decisions and changing behavior. School counselors work with all students, school staff, families and members of the community as an integral part of the education program. School counseling programs promote school success through a focus on academic achievement, prevention and intervention activities, advocacy and social/emotional and career development. ~ American School Counselor Association

Our Vision

Every student will acquire the academic, career, and social/emotional skills to reach their fullest educational potential and successfully manage their lives as safe, responsible, competent, and productive citizens who respect themselves and others.
