Counseling Services

School counseling services support students in acquiring the attitude, knowledge and skills that contribute to academic, social/personal and career success. School counselors work in schools to:

  • Teach skills that help children succeed in school and in their personal life.
  • Help resolve problems that interfere with student learning.
  • Advocate for children and families and provide referrals for long term counseling.
  • Provide privacy of information shared by parents and students in a safe and confidential environment.
  • Promote career development and post-high school planning.

Our counseling staff are here for your assistance. Your school counselor can be reached by calling the main office.
