The Counseling Program is focused on helping all students achieve success in their academic work, social development and personal growth. We believe that every student has potential and within a safe, supportive school environment, can be empowered to make good choices and be a positive & productive member of the community.

The Counseling Program

Our Counseling Program offers prevention projects and interventions that helps to guide students on a healthy path toward adulthood. Through our Advisory period, held every day for the first 25 minutes, students receive guidance lessons that support academic and social skills. Students may talk with the counselor to discuss any academic, personal, emotional, or social issues by coming to the Student Support Center and signing in to make an appointment.
