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. Students and parents are encouraged to schedule appointments with their child’s school counselor at any time to discuss these areas and to answer any questions and concerns. The School Counseling Department may specifically assist a student in the following ways:


  • individual student academic program planning
  • ongoing evaluation of student’s academic progress and success
  • academic counseling for at risk students
  • analyze and utilize school and student data
  • tutoring resources

  • career programs based on student needs


  • parent, peer, teacher relationships
