School Counseling Program

Every child deserves a champion — an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists they become the best they can be. —Rita Pierson

What We Do

Individual & Small Group Counseling

A student may be referred to a school counselor by him/herself, a teacher, or a parent/guardian.

Referral forms are available in the main office for parents.

If a teacher refers a student, the counselor will contact parents if ongoing counseling is recommended.

Counselors maintain confidentiality.

Classroom Guidance

Counselors support students' social, emotional, academic and career development through classroom guidance lessons.

Specific areas of focus and schedules are arranged with individual teachers and grade levels.
