The purpose of the school counseling program is to impart specific skills and learning opportunities in a proactive and preventive manner, which ensures that all students can achieve school success through academic, career, and personal/social development experiences. All students benefit from the services of a certified school counselor who delivers a school counseling program that is comprehensive in scope and developmental in nature (American School Counselor Association, 1997).

Counselors provide conflict mediation and assist with resolving problems that interfere with learning for students, provide classroom guidance lessons on planned topics and assist with registration/scheduling of classes. The counselors support both teachers and parents in assisting the students to be successful both academically and personally. Counselors are happy to provide referrals for community resources to assist students and their families.  Students are encouraged to make appointments to see their counselors by using the appointment request forms located in their classrooms and in the Guidance Office.
