Counseling Department

Mission and Vision Statement
Counselors provide access to a comprehensive educational counseling program, including academic, college and career, and social-emotional domains. Counselors use evidence-based interventions to support students' educational and social-emotional needs.

Counselors

Counselors work to facilitate each student’s educational, career, and social/personal development by utilizing a comprehensive and collaborative approach. The department supports teaching and learning by assuring that all students achieve academic success and develop life skills through the acquisition of academic, career, and personal/social competencies, which will prepare them for meaningful participation in a diverse, changing world. Credentialed school counselors provide comprehensive school counseling programs that incorporate prevention and intervention activities through classroom presentations, individual meetings, and small and/or large group presentations. Please refer to the Academic Counseling Calendar for more information regarding the dates and times of these presentations.

Counselors are available for students on a drop-in basis. Parents may contact their student’s counselor by phone or email. We request that parents make appointments with their student’s counselor to ensure availability.  In addition, we prefer that the student accompany parents to the meeting to ensure all parties are involved regarding the educational plan and commitments.  Counselors are often meeting with students, facilitating presentations, and are required to attend meetings and conferences which may pull them away from the office at various times.

We look forward to working with you this year.
