Counselor's Corner

Our primary focus is to facilitate instruction by removing barriers to student learning. School counselors deliver the school counseling program in collaboration with students, families, school staff, and community stakeholders through direct and indirect services, including, instruction, advisement, counseling, consultation, and referrals. These services target four main areas of development for students:

● Interpersonal Effectiveness
● Intrapersonal Effectiveness
● Personal Health and Safety
● Post-Secondary Education and Career Readiness

The comprehensive school counseling program serves all students while differentiating to meet the specific developmental needs at the primary, middle, and high school levels.
