School Counseling Department

The School Counseling Department designs and delivers a comprehensive school counseling program. It is a pro-active, prevention-based program that serves all students and is a collaborative effort between the school counselor, parents and other educators to create an environment that promotes student achievement.  It is an integral component of the Junior High School’s academic mission and is driven by student data and is based on standards in academic, career and personal/social development.
