Comprehensive School Counseling Program

A comprehensive school counseling program supports academic, social-emotional, personal, and career development, ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow.

School Counselor's Role

School counselors spend the majority of time working directly with students, teachers, parents, and the community in responsive services, individual student planning, as well as providing social and emotional curriculum to support the challenges students face in schools today.
